Developer unveils new plans for village

PLANS have been unveiled to build two new properties at The Bay holiday village.

The proposals would see the end of current proposals for four terraced units on the site’s Copse development to be replaced by two detached homes.

The new properties, which would include four bedrooms, would replace existing plans to build the four homes that included two, two bedroom homes, a three bedroom property and a four bedroom dwelling.

The plans have been submitted by architects Barton Willmore on behalf of developers Essential Vivendi and will reduce the potential number of properties from 31 to 29 in the development.

A statement from the company said: “The Bay is being developed to be a high quality holiday village.

“It is providing an important boost to the borough’s economy and is regenerating a derelict site that had become an eyesore.

“When completed it will have attracted more than £120 million of funding to the local area.

“This development will assist the borough’s economy at a very difficult time when many jobs have been lost in construction and other industries.

“The development of the Copse will be important in the continued viability and economic success of The Bay by making the development more attractive to potential purchasers.

“The Bay is well placed to reverse the decline in the local holiday industry and with the range of facilities on site it will therefore be better placed than traditional caravan parks to support year round tourism, and permanent jobs in tourism.”
