Are things stirring at Oceanville? Yesterday afternoon and evening, men working, shutters raised, lights on, noises of drilling and hammering from inside some apartments. I shall take a better look later.

I took a walk around the site yesterday. Several of the townhouses are obviously now occupied. A French car was parked outside one. One of them is growing cabbages in the garden- most out of keeping with the area! Work is proceeding on the block nearest the main road, which is now fenced off as an official construction site. I can only get pictures through the fences. Vegetation is being cleared, scaffolding can be seen on some parts. However, nothing is happening on most of the rest of the site, including the hotel, which remains neglected and in very poor condition.

Hope this is good news. Only other possible reason is the council can issue an enforcement order if properties are not maintained.

On those blocks it looks to me more than maintenance. There are pallet loads of cement being delivered, cable drums arriving and scaffolding is going up all over. The other blocks, away from the road, are still untouched. I shall try to have another look on Sunday when they aren't working.

Hi Casper, firstly thank you for the pictures and so hope you are right about this. It's been such a blight on Pateo. Looking forward to seeing how this moves forward.

There is lot going, buit only in those blocks nearest the main road. Exteriors being repainted, interiors being repaired, glasswork receiving attention, trees and undergrowth being cut down.

Pictures taken early Sunday afternoon, 25th February.

Hello, thankyou for all of the updates and recent photos. Has anyone been in touch with a solicitor to find out what is going on and where we stand. We bought one of the apartments but have heard nothing. I will try again to contact our solicitor,

If memory serves, the blocks being renovated were never occupied. The other areas are as yet untouched. I will get some more pictures tomorrow, Thursday, having remembered to recharge the camera battery!
