PLANS have now been submitted for the multimillion pound transformation of two seafront locations.

Entrepreneur Luke Davis intends to turn restaurants and kiosks at Sandbanks and Branksome Chine into a Rockwater Village, modelled on the Rockwater operation he runs at Hove.

And official plans have now been submitted to BCP Council officials detailing the developments.

A statement submitted with the Sandbanks application said: “Rockwater have successfully established a beachside café/restaurant in Hove and therefore have extensive knowledge and experience in designing and operating high quality restaurants which provide an attractive tourism offer and beachside destination.

“As such, the current proposal offers an exciting opportunity to respectfully revitalise the iconic site at Sandbanks Beach, maximising the use value of the site, improving the business opportunity on the site and improving Poole’s tourism offer.

“The existing building will be reconfigured to provide the restaurant area with central bar servery, booth seating, sofa style seating, mid height table, high tables and regular seating.

“The existing back of house will provide unisex w/cs with a separate baby change and UA toilet, comms room, glasswash and ice machines, wines and spirits store and a cellar.”

Speaking of the plans at Branksome Chine, developers said it would retain the original 1930s building, with only “minimal changes” to the external frontage.

The development would “make the most efficient use of the site’s unique location, capturing panoramic views and also preserving the coastline character of Branksome Chine Beach”.

Speaking of the plans in January, Mr Davis said the two projects would be linked through the Rockwater Village.

He said: “The new venues will completely change the way Bournemouth seafront operates, offering an elevated and community-driven hospitality experience.

“In keeping with Branksome and Sandbanks' community-driven ethos, the venues will aim to serve as a new community hub to nurture the mental and physical well-being of all visitors.

“As my passion project, I want Rockwater Village to become the heart of the community, providing a go-to venue for lifestyle and wellness events which breaks the mould of the traditional hospitality venue that Brits might have become accustomed to."

The plans will go to committee in the coming months.
