    About this property

    • Description
      The site is devoid of built form. However, it was formerly occupied by an extensive number of buildings associated with the Defence Evaluation and Research Agency (‘DERA’), which was a part of the Ministry of Defence (‘MoD’).

      The site has recently secured an outline consent for a comprehensive mixed use development which has focused on exceptional architecture, regeneration, sustainability and quality.

      The proposed development will provide five separate character areas which will provide a variety of uses. The buildings would be dispersed across the site and served by various parking areas.

      The proposed care home will be located in the centre of the site, nearest to the cliff edge. The proposed building would have a gross internal area of 2,215 sqm and would provide up to 60 bedrooms over three floors.

      The proposed employment block would be located at the southernmost part of the site. It would have a total gross internal area of 1,186 sqm over four floors.

      Internally, the proposed employment building would provide a total of 5 commercial units suitable for a range of occupiers and local businesses.

      In terms of parking provision, the employment building would be provided with 24 car spaces and ample cycle parking for staff and visitors. In addition, a turning head is provided to ensure commercial vehicles can service the units in a safe manner.

      The gym and restaurant will sit beneath the residential and provide 340 sq m and 328 sq m of space respectively.

      CGI’s, plans and information surrounding the scheme are available upon request and subject to status.

      Outline planning permission has been granted under
      P/OUT/2022/00852.

      Rateable Value

    Local information

    • Newton’s Cove is located in an unparalleled position fronting Weymouth seafront with panoramic sea views.
    • The site is located at the western end of the Bincleaves Groyne, which divides Newtons Cove from Portland Harbour. It occupies a prominent location along the Weymouth seafront and sits below a visually imposing cliff face which forms part of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site.
    • The cliff face physically separates the low lying site from the residential area to the west, which includes a large area of public open space with a public footpath along the cliff top. At the cliff top there is an existing building which is used by HM Coastguard.
