New AC35 Dockyard plans submitted

ACBDA have submitted new planning applications for Dockyard in advance of the 2017 America's Cup.

A pair of applications were received by the Planning Department last week proposing a new service road to Moresby Plain Field, and alterations to a building near the entrance of Dockyard.

The proposed new service road would use the same road that services the Westgate Correctional Facility. In addition to the road itself, the application proposes the erection of a new security gate and gate house for the facility, along with the relocation of several pole-mounted security cameras.

The entrance to the road from Pender Road would meanwhile be widened, and a parking Island outside the prison would be removed.

A draft master plan included in a previous planning application suggested that the field, also known as Malabar Field, would be used for parking and utilities storage during the America's Cup.

The second application proposes the removal of an overhead roller shutter door and some fill-in concrete masonry from Chicare Building number 2, a listed building located at 1 Smithery Lane.

The project would also include the erection of new RC columns and steel beams to create a larger opening to the building with a new, larger roller shutter.
