The boarded-up Wight City site.
A THIRD set of plans to transform an eyesore site at Sandown were published on Friday.
Wight City Leisure has lodged fresh plans for Culver Parade, which would result in 47 apartments being built on the landmark site — if the project is passed by planners.
A scheme for a 63-apartment and bar complex was thrown out in February 2012 for a second time, leaving the prime seafront area unused.
Tourism chiefs and developers have since issued an urgent plea to planners to help shape-up Sandown, saying the town was becoming an eyesore and having a negative impact on the Island’s tourism economy.
The new proposal also includes a ground-floor restaurant and bar with underground parking.
