Poole: Salterns Marina in line for £100m facelift

Plans have been submitted to regenerate and improve the popular marina facilities at Salterns in Poole.  The marina is set for a £100 million facelift which will include a luxury hotel, apartments and an exclusive rooftop restaurant.

The hotel with spa will be built on the site of the current hotel, and the rooftop restaurant, to be housed in the hotel, will offer panoramic views of the famous harbour.

73 apartments will also be constructed, while the berthing and marina facilities will be reconfigured to world-class standards.

As well as being able to enjoy these fantastic new facilities, residents of Poole will benefit from close to £3m in community infrastructure levy which the scheme will generate. This money is used by the local council to improve and build new schools and local infrastructure.

The development is spearheaded by property specialist Richard Carr, who is acting on behalf of Salterns Marina.

He said: “The directors of Salterns Marina are very aware that the facilities are now over 40 years old and the hotel even older.  They believe the time has come to give Poole a world-class marina, a new hotel, spa and a high-quality restaurant overlooking our magnificent harbour.

“The timing is perfect, especially with Rick Stein’s restaurant coming to Sandbanks in the near future.”
