Mixed development near Osprey Quay, Portland
Mixed development near Osprey Quay, Portland
Former naval land at the flat northwest end of Portland appears to be developing in a piecemeal way. Roads such as Lerret Road, left, have been laid out but the spaces between them seem slow to fill. Maritime, industrial and commercial businesses and services are present or under construction. Nearest the camera on the right is a school: the Osprey Quay campus of Atlantic Academy Portland, a co-educational through school and sixth form for ages 3-19. In the background are blocks of private apartments, formerly accommodation for naval personnel: SY6874 : Portland: New apartments overlooking 2012 Olympic Games venue.
