New video showcases Millbay’s transformation
Watch this video to see how the English Cities Fund is transforming the historic former Millbay docks area of Plymouth, creating a vibrant new waterfront quarter for the city, with high quality homes, business space, leisure and community facilities.
The impressive list of achievements includes more than 400 new homes, new businesses within the 25,000 sq ft of business space already created, a new 1,000-pupil Plymouth School of Creative Arts, the 171-berth King Point Marina and successful Dock Restaurant, all contributing to an increasingly busy and vibrant local community.
There are award-winning new public spaces, direct access to the waterfront has been restored and the listed docksides, built by Isambard Kingdom Brunel, have been refurbished.
Millbay has also delivered the first section of a new boulevard aimed at reconnecting the city centre and waterfront, a long-held Plymouth planning policy aim as part of the wider regeneration of the city centre. A further 137 homes and an 80-home extra care facility are nearing completion. And a planning application was recently obtained for the next phase of 58 apartments, a 126-bedroom hotel and ground floor retail/leisure space at the gateway to the new Millbay boulevard and overlooking the inner harbour.
