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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

Took a walk around the other day. The jungle is slowly reclaiming the main part of the site. Three or four of the townhouses around the back have been sold and are occupied, but the majority still are empty and the 'for sale' signs are gone.










The views from up there - down into old town area.

Hi Cabsur, thanks for the update and so hope your right about the site being sold but maybe just the council forcing owners to clean up. We will be out in Pateo from tomorrow for a month so don't know if you ever have a drink at Nunos. If so would be please to meet you and thank you for all the work you do maintaining this forum and buy you a beer..

Operatives have recently been busy clearing away the jungle and trimming the hedges, although rather messily. Is this because of the fire regulations, or might all the rumours about the site being sold finally be coming true?
