This 37 acre site on the eastern bank of the River Dart has a rich history of shipbuilding that dates back to the 1880s. During the war the shipyard built over 200 vessels as part of the war effort. In September 1942 the shipyard was hit by Luftwaffe bombs – an attack in which 20 men were killed. The shipyard survived and continued to operate until the late 1990s, when the demise of the British shipbuilding industry eventually caused the yard to close its doors in 1999.
Premier Marinas purchased Noss-on-Dart in 2016 with a vision to create a vibrant place of interest that will work with the natural beauty of the site, to secure its future for boaters, and to bring visitors, employment and investment opportunities into the area.
In 2017, we were appointed as part of a design team led by Harrison Sutton Partnership to provide Site Masterplanning, Landscape and Visual Impact Assessments and Landscape Architecture. The project involves the regeneration and development of Noss on Dart in Dartmouth to provide new marina control, commercial and marine academy buildings, a hotel and spa as well as significant public realm works.
Planning was granted for the redevelopment of the site in 2018 and the construction of Phase 1 commenced shortly afterwards.
We are pleased to confirm the Reserved Matters applications for South Bay (houses, deckhouses and terraced deckhouses and Hillside have now been approved (March 2023). We can’t wait to see this part of the project spring to life.
Here are the plans, we will update with photos as the project continues to develop.
