Planning Approved To Upgrade Gosport Marina

A planning application for a multimillion regeneration of Premier Marinas’ Gosport Marina has been approved by Gosport Borough Council. 

The approved plan, which incorporates the whole site, includes a landmark facilities building that will house a marina reception and office, luxury shower rooms and a new berth holder’s lounge. This new building, overlooking Portsmouth Harbour, will also provide a new home for the onsite food and beverage restaurant.

The approved planning also includes:
–  The refurbishment and extension of the commercial building, occupied by STS Defence Limited, securing skilled employment in Gosport.
–  The re-location of the dry stack and landscaping improvements to the car parking and boat storage areas.
–  A residential development providing 70 homes (outline permission).

Marina manager at Gosport Marina, Jonathan Walcroft said: “The new building will be an incredible asset to the marina and demonstrates our focus in providing the very best facilities for our berth holders and visitors. The plans also reflects Premier’s ongoing commitment to investing in the regeneration of Gosport – the development will bring significant benefits to the local community including supporting the creation of new jobs. I am excited we are creating a marina fit for the future!”
