Mr Brent plans for the pavilions will mess up MacKay’s idea for a boulevard from City Centre and Millbay

Quote

WORK is to start on the Millbay boulevard – a decade after it was first suggested by Barcelona architect David Mackay.

The first section of a planned new boulevard linking Plymouth city centre with the waterfront will be laid out and opened as part of a £19million waterfront housing development.

The southern end of the boulevard is being brought forward significantly earlier than anticipated as part of the next phase of development of 102 homes at Millbay's East Quay.

Lead developer English Cities Fund (ECf) has received planning permission from Plymouth City Council for the homes.

The boulevard was a major part of the 2003 Mackay Vision for Plymouth. Mr Mackay called for the city to embrace its relationship with the sea once more and reconnect with its waterfront.

Another developer, James Brent, has said he would deliver a significant part of the boulevard when he redevelops the Pavilions. But his masterplan for the area shows a road curving to the east of the Pavilions instead of Mr Mackay's proposed boulevard following the line of Bath Street.

An ECf spokesman said they had worked closely with Plymouth City Council to agree the early construction of an interim boulevard from Millbay's inner basin through to Millbay Road.

"Completion of the final boulevard will tie in with planned future development at Millbay and will link with proposals for neighbouring redevelopment projects, including the Pavilions."

Duncan Cumberland, development director for Muse Developments, which is one of the partners in ECf, said: "We are keenly aware of the importance of Millbay's regeneration and the need to link the benefits of this back into the city centre.

"There is now real momentum behind the regeneration of Millbay."

Work on the next phase at East Quay, including the interim boulevard, is expected to start early this year and is scheduled to be completed by December next year.

The Homes and Communities Agency's (HCA) has agreed to invest in the scheme through its Get Britain Building programme. This investment is subject to agreement of legal terms which are due to be completed very shortly.

The regeneration of Millbay is gathering pace. Construction is progressing well on the apartment block Cargo 2, which had a successful sales launch in November and will see the first of its 48 new homes ready in April.

The new 179-berth King Point marina in the Millbay inner basin, built and operated by Sutton Harbour Group, and is scheduled to be opened in the summer.

Janet Ventre the Homes and Communities Agency area manager, said: "This project is demonstrating once again that it has huge potential to bring about the transformation of Plymouth by creating a new destination where people will want to live, work and visit."

Council leader Tudor Evans said: "This boulevard is something that has been talked about for so long, but it is finally happening.

"We've watched this spark of a vision for a waterfront city go from aspiration to reality. It's a huge and exciting step for Plymouth – it is opening up new horizons for this city."

PLANS have been submitted for a £12million scheme to transform Paignton's Oldway Mansion into a luxury hotel and sheltered retirement flats complex.

Developers Akkeron have put in four separate applications — which are being recommended for approval — to redevelop the site currently used by Torbay Council.

James Brent, Akkeron chairman, said: "Our proposals are the result of considerable work and consultation locally, all focussed on ensuring a long term sustainable future for Oldway Mansion and its gardens, creating enhanced public access and at the same time providing investment and job creation in the Bay."

The first application seeks to build 48 three and four-bedroom town houses within the grounds of the former Singer family home and 64 assisted living apartments on the site of the former 1960s Fernham Nursing Home.

If built, the hotel would create 70 jobs.

The second planning application focuses on the erection of a new orangery, wedding room and cafe and a four-rink bowling centre.

The current tennis court would also be reconfigured and the access road would be altered while new parking spaces would be created.

The third and fourth applications are for a change of use for Oldway Mansion itself, the Rotunda and stables and turn the Grade II-listed buildings and associated gardens into a 57-bedroom luxury hotel with ancillary spa, conference and banqueting facilities.

The plan is to make some internal and external alterations to the buildings, creating a new foyer entrance to the stables and restoring or refurbishing the existing glass conservatory.

The current squash court would be demolished and the listed gardens, designed by Duchene, would be restored to their past glory.

In her report to the planning committee, council officer Ruth Robinson said the 'package of development is a much scaled down version of earlier schemes designed to secure the future of Oldway'.

She said: "The benefits are to secure a robust and sustainable future for this at-risk group of listed buildings and the restoration of their associated formal gardens.

"The proposed hotel use will not only secure the fabric of the buildings but will generate up to 70 local jobs and have significant spin-off in terms of the local economy and tourism.

"The restoration of the gardens, which are of significant historical interest, is also a major benefit and much valued by local people."

Mrs Robinson said one of the minus points of the scheme was the loss of several mature trees.

If the go-ahead is granted, work could start first on the replacement of the Fernham Unit by 64 new sheltered retirement flats by McCarthy and Stone this autumn.

Some children's services staff have already moved out of the mansion and the register office is due to move to Cockington Court in March. Akkeron could take control of the site in July.

The developers have been negotiating with McCarthy and Stone, which would sub-lease the Fernham from Torbay Council and build the complex itself. Proceeds from the sale would go into a specific account to be used for the Oldway project or go back to the council if the project failed.

Mrs Robinson said: "Securing the future of heritage assets take precedence over concerns regarding a relatively minor encroachment of its setting and the recommendation is that permission should be granted."

All four applications are recommended for approval subject to additional plans and S106 details.

The applications go before the planning committee on Monday, April 30.

If JB is thwarted will the attack dogs be unleashed?

It looks a cracking development and a very pleasant change from the bomb site that greets visitors from across the sea now.

If you look at this, the Akkeron Group isn't so much hotels as it is about land and farming:

I wonder why James would be interested in linking himself mainly with the hotel side of the group, though. Would it be that a more 'service based' industry sounds more appealing, more glamourous and a softer sell than the 'agriculture' industry?

The 'hotel' man owns hotels, but he also owns a feckload of land. Which he tends to develop.

But yeah, he fooking loves football now. Nothing to do with the land he inherited. He just loves football.

His lip quivered FFS.

You'd better hope he doesn't spot the opportunity to build some nice yuppie flats in Newton Abbott and have to fell your treehouse for the access road Mike.

Imagine Nigel and clarissa having to explain you in the bottom of their garden during dinner parties?

"We keep him on as a symbol of how far we've come since buying akkeron shares"

""Rather Nigel, and he cuts the grass fora blow job"

""Don't remind me clarissa sweetie, it took two weeks of gargling with TCP for me to get rid of the taste of cheese and cider last time, and I'm not even going to tell you what I had to do to get the leaves out of the guttering. Every time I see a hedgehog now I faint"
