Ocean Village bid to expand

Ocean Village Properties has submitted applications for outline planning permission to build two new tower blocks on the site of the BP petrol station in Waterport, next to Portland House.

The two buildings, the tallest of which is 59.8 metres high, will cost a total of £27 million to construct and will include residential and commercial premises.

The smaller of the two proposed blocks, a triangular 53.8 metre high structure, will be built at a cost of £10 million on a vacant site next to the BP station.

It includes plans for commercial premises on the ground floor with 60 two-bedroom apartments above.

The second, taller building also foresees construction of commercial premises with 112 flats above, of which 96 will be two-bedroom apartments and the remainder single bedroom homes.

The second building, which will cost £17 million to construct, includes plans for basement parking with enough room for 28 cars and 11 motorbikes.

The applications for the two new blocks still have to be considered by the Development and Planning Commission. They are both available for public inspection at the Office of the Town Planner in Europort.

Ocean Village Properties is already developing the nearby Ocean Village complex, which includes construction of luxury homes and a marina on the site of the old Sheppard’s Marina.
