The development of the Bay Place Plan has now begun, with a view to providing a shared vision and action plan that supports our local communities. This is a partnership project which seeks to unite Sandown with Lake and Shanklin, whilst recognising the distinct challenges and opportunities in each location and celebrating the unique characteristics.
Developing the plan we have the tri-consortium of Feria Urbanism, Støriie and the Place Bureau, who together presented an exciting and inspired consultancy application to representatives from the partnership councils earlier this year. The group are currently undertaking local research and horizon scanning to understand the work that has already been done on local plans and learn about ongoing projects impacting the area.
Bay Place Plan
The town and parish councils of Sandown, Shanklin and Lake, in partnership with the Isle of Wight Council, formally launched the Bay Area Place Plan at a public meeting at the Broadway Centre, Sandown on the 8th January 2024.
report comprises three main sections: principles and values, spatial strategy
and themes and topics, including highlighting potential investment and civic
opportunities for the three Bay area communities.
It also showcases data and feedback from the three-day think space delivered by Feria and Storii which saw residents and local businesses come together to share their visions for the future of the area.
The place plan
sets out its aims and objectives that focus around engagement and empowerment,
strategic thinking, economic growth, infrastructure investment, quality of life
for residents and visitors, and securing funds.
