Work is due to begin on the second phase of the landmark Ocean Views development to build 348 new homes on Portland in Dorset.

Landowner, The Comer Group and Weymouth & Portland Borough Council have been working closely together to take the £25m project forward.

The Comer Group has already redeveloped one of two former naval accommodation blocks at the site in Castletown with 206 flats in its Atlantic House scheme.

Now, developer Fulca Ltd, a Comer Group company, is set to transform the remaining building into 157 apartments. It will also develop 191 new build homes at the rear of the site.

Cllr Jeff Cant, Council Leader and briefholder for finance and assets, said, “The partly completed Comer homes site overlooking Castletown has been a problem for several years.

“There has been a resurgence in investment in this very run down area over the past several years lead by Derek Luckhurst.

“Castletown has great potential and we are delighted that the company has worked through all the obstacles with us over the last two years to achieve such a positive outcome.”
