New Portland Development to Create Job Opportunities
5:23pm 5th April 2013
Land currently used for parking boats next to Portland's National Sailing Academy could be transformed into a new development creating hundreds of jobs.
Plans for a new site on Hamm Beach road have been approved.
Developers want to build 6 large industrial units on the old Mere Tank Farm site which they say will create 500 plus jobs.
They'll be some new offices and storage warehouses amongst it all too.
Members of the planning and traffic committee at the Borough Council backed proposals at a meeting on Wednesday (3rd April) on the condition the developers pay £80,000 towards improving the cycle and walking route along Portland Beech Road.
