Planning Update on Ocean Village Hotel

Plans to build a hotel at Ocean Village were first proposed as far back as 2006 when an initial application was first submitted to the council for consideration. (You can read more about the history of this development on our ‘Big Issues’ page.) Back in January 2012 we reported that Harbour Hotels were looking to make it a reality and had submitted revised plans which would, for the first time, also include a residential development to make the entire scheme more viable. In response to this, the planning department at Southampton City Council, after first seeking comments from the local community, went back to Savills (who are handling the matter for both Harbour Hotels and Marina Developments Ltd (MDL)) with a number of issues requiring further consideration.

Savills have now responded at length to the matters raised and have submitted additional planning documents to support their planning application.
