In the future ?
TDP are appointed by the landowner to manage the redevelopment of a redundant holiday village on the Isle of Wight covering an area of about 12 hectares (30 acres).
The site has the benefit of a mature parkland setting fronting onto an unspoilt stretch of beach with magnificent views across The Solent. We have commissioned a considerable amount of market analysis to support a Business Plan that promotes a mix of uses on the site including high quality holiday accommodation.
We are currently co-ordinating the design team in the preparation of a master plan ahead of submitting a planning application.
The proposed scheme will comprise a variety of accommodation from detached houses to serviced apartments. The proposal includes sport, leisure and other recreational uses. Its aim is to become the foremost holiday location on the Isle of Wight and to spearhead the Islandís renaissance as a tourist destination
