WORLD NEWS Redevelopment approved for second Windermere site UK: Windermere Aquatic has secured planning approval for its Waterhead Marine site (above) in Ambleside on Lake Windermere, England. A 47 berth marina, two houses and five two-storey holiday units with car parking will be built at an estimated cost of £14 million. The approval follows consent for the redevelopment and extension of the company’s Windermere Quays marina at Bowness-on-Windermere. Marina Projects acts as marina designer and lead consultant for both projects which, ITALY: At 12 noon on 15th October, the iconic yacht ‘Tuiga’ – the flagship of the Monaco Yacht Club – became the first vessel to moor up at the new Molo d’Onore berths at Cala del Forte in Ventimiglia. An hour and a half later, a 50m (164ft) superyacht also docked, and two further yachts arrived before the day was out. The arrival pre-empted the marina’s official opening, not due to take place until June/July 2021 when upland construction is complete. Reservations are, however, being taken at daily, monthly and seasonal rates. along with Beech Hill, comprise the three marine centres Windermere Aquatic operates on the lake. Marina Projects managed and coordinated a comprehensive professional team including planning consultant Steven Abbott Associates. “This planning approval does not just allow the redevelopment of this key site, it is also a vital part of our wider master plan and development strategy. The significant value created by this development will be reinvested to expand the marine leisure and tourism offer across Bowness and Beech Hill,” said Windermere Aquatic managing director Grahame Armer. “I have worked extensively with Mike Ward and his team at Marina Projects and this latest planning success is a testament to their professional and dedicated approach. They have kept the entire project team on track and have done a great job in navigating their way through the challenging planning issues at Waterhead,” he continued. Mike Ward, managing director at Marina Projects, commented: “Grahame’s knowledge of the industry and commitment to a high-quality design that respected the location was critical to unlocking this planning approval. Equally important was working with Grahame to develop a clear vision and strategy for how his sites can work together and securing buy-in from the planning officers at the Lake District National Park Authority.” “There was an extensive professional team to manage, as well as providing our own design inputs and a comprehensive Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment (LVIA). It was very pleasing that the efforts of our design team on the LVIA led to no substantive comments; a real achievement in a World Heritage Site and also reflective of a design that fits the surroundings,” he added. – November/December 2020 15
