Local Authorities and Services
Isle of Wight Council . The buyer will need to make their own enquires regards the availability of services.

The vision for the site is to provide a high quality, highly sustainable, eco lodge development that responds to its immediate surroundings and is in line with the aspirations of the tourism board in terms of attracting the right demographic and, stimulating local economic growth. The site will be part of a nature reserve complex, along with the rspb land and will seek to benefit from the highly attractive vistas, walks and cycle ways that can be enhanced and created.
There is a clear business benefit of the continued close association with the rspb. Not only will the landscape quality of the surrounding area help to underpin sales values and/or holiday lettings but we will also be able to gain clearly focused exposure in the rspb member publications. There is opportunity to promote the destination in the rspb members’ periodical magazine – this will give the developer immediate, focused and direct exposure to individuals who fit the demographic profile of identified buyers and holiday makers alike. It is our understanding that the rspb has circa two million members worldwide.

One of the key elements that sets the proposed development apart from other island destinations is the ongoing ecological emphasis and management. The original business concept proposed that the Reception will not only hold keys and offer support services, but will also provide full laundry, maintenance and management support with members of staff shuttling around the site in electric vehicles. Bikes will be made available to hire on site. In addition to these measures focus will also be placed on the continued upkeep of the high quality landscape surroundings.

Local Amenities and Surrounding Area
The site is an ideal tourist destination being a short distance from the village of Brading which has most everyday needs as well as a station on the Island Line. To the East on the coast are the villages of St Helens and Bembridge with its harbour marina. To the south are Sandown and Shanklin with its golf courses and to the north is Ryde which has extensive facilities.

The land is located to the south of Carpenters Road opposite the Oasis retail unit. (PO36 0QA)
