CHANGES can be made at any Isle of Wight sailing club.

Sea View Yacht Club wants to install shipping containers in its dinghy fleet and also run a seasonal outdoor bar.

At its base on the Esplanade, the yacht club is applying for permission to build a temporary wooden building, serving as a bar, on its outside deck, which would only be used from Easter to September.

Agents on behalf of the club, Plan Research, say the location of the structure has been carefully chosen to be sensitive to its surroundings.

Agents say members prefer the ability to sit outside due to current Covid health concerns and the club has been looking at ways to provide services including the provision of hot and cold drinks, outside.

At its Duver Road dinghy park, the club is seeking retrospective permission for the boat storage racks it has installed, after being told by council it needed planning permission.

He also plans to install four shipping containers for educational purposes.

As the popularity of the club’s Seaview Schools sailing project grows, the club believes it would be safer and children would have more time sailing if lessons could be conducted from the dinghy park.

The project offers free sailing lessons to 5th graders in primary schools on the island, encouraging children to sail and develop their skills.

The containers would be added to the dinghy park to serve as changing rooms and storage space.

You can view both plans, 22/00663/FUL (dinghy park) and 22/00744/FUL (bar), on the IW Council planning register. Comments can be submitted until November 18.
