Barry Island holiday park site for sale
Published 25 June 2015
The Vale of Glamorgan Council is inviting offers for the land formerly occupied by much loved holiday camp at Barry Island as part of the ongoing work to regenerate the seaside resort.
Now that the multimillion pound Barry Island regeneration scheme is reaching its conclusion the Nell’s Point site, currently being used as a temporary car park, and the adjacent Grade II Listed toilet block are being marketed by agents who are seeking ‘imaginative and viable commercial leisure and tourism developments’. Both are expected to attract significant interest.
Paul Tarling, Public Sector and Development Consultant at Jones Lang Lasalle, who are marketing the sites on the council’s behalf, said: “These two sites are arguably one the best opportunities available for a leisure and tourism development in South Wales. Both enjoy panoramic views across the region’s premier sandy beach, Whitmore Bay, and are just a short trip from Cardiff, Wales’ capital city.”
Cllr Lis Burnett, Cabinet Member for Regeneration, said: “As we enter the summer season there is a new buzz around Barry Island. Recent extensive regeneration work has given the eastern promenade a new lease of life through the creation of the eye catching beach huts, a striking climbing wall and new manicured gardens. In addition to this the iconic Barry Island funfair is once again in operation and construction of the new Island link road is underway.
“This makes this the perfect time to market what we know to be two coveted sites. We wait with interest to see what exciting new leisure and tourism schemes will be proposed.”
The sites are offered for sale by informal tender and the sites can be purchased individually or together. The deadline for tender submissions is 30 September 2015.
