Proposals for a £50 million hotel scheme to be built in Southampton have been given the green light by planning officials in Southampton City Council. The new development, which will include a luxury hotel with a restaurant and a rooftop bar, is likely to boost the building construction sector and create new jobs in the city, Career Structure News has reported.
Development plans submitted by MDL Marinas include the building of 82 flats, a variety of shops and restaurants as well as office space to let. Tenders for building construction work are expected to be announced within weeks, as work is expected to begin this autumn.
Managing Director at MDL Marinas, Eamonn Feeney, said: “We are delighted with today’s decision which will enable us to deliver the final stage of the master plan for Ocean Village Marina, and most importantly create a vibrant waterfront destination for the city.”
Director of Economic Development at Southampton City Council, Dawn Baxendale, welcomed the decision for the major development and said that it will bring a lot of benefits to the city.
Ms Baxendale commented: “This is excellent news for Southampton and I congratulate MDL Marinas for getting their planning approved.
“The scheme demonstrates that serious investors believe Southampton represents their future and is a city that is becoming comparable with the best in Europe.”

The new site will incorporate a number of key green initiatives in line with its long term commitment to the conservation of the environment.
Efficient under floor heating will be incorporated in the Trevithick Inn to avoid the need for radiators; solar PV panels will provide electricity and electric car charging points will be installed in the car park.
Similarly, LED lighting will be fitted in the reception and restaurant to reduce electricity consumption.
The new restaurant, named Trevithick Inn and Premier Inn hotel will be injecting a total investment of £5.9 million into the local economy.
David Murdin, Whitbread Restaurants Marketing Director, said: “We are delighted to bring a new hotel and restaurant to Camborne and we can’t wait to welcome our guests to the Trevithick Inn Table Table restaurant and Premier Inn in January.”
