Premier Swanwick is delighted to announce that a planning application for a Pavilion building to house boat sales and marine businesses, along with a new food, beverage and facilities building, overlooking the water, has been approved by Fareham Borough Council.
The approved planning also includes a new bridgehead entrance structure, additional car parking and trolley storage at the marina.
These new landside developments follow the recent completion of Swanwick’s new floating marina a £4m investment by Premier Marinas. The new floating marina offers 333 berths (6m-40m); an overall increase of 59 on the old configuration.
Alongside this, all Swanwick berth holders now benefit from a berth measuring at least the length of their boat. This feature, coupled with fairway and pontoon specifications that exceed industry standards, make berthing easier and safer - particularly for power boat owners who can now step directly onto their pontoon from the back of their boat.
But one of the most innovative aspects of Premier’s new marina lies at the centre section, where berths are set 700mm above water the water (200mm above standard industry height) to reduce sailing boat customers’ deck to pontoon ‘jump down’ when berthing their vessel.
General Manager at Swanwick Marina, Graham Bristowe is pleased to receive the go ahead to continue with the land development of Swanwick Marina: “In these most testing times, this is great news for Swanwick Marina. We know that our tenants and berth holders alike will be happy to see the continued investment on their site”
