Marina Plans for Portpatrick

Portpatrick Harbour owners have lodged plans with the council for a 70-berth marina at the popular South Rhins village.

The application by Portpatrick Harbour Limited details plans for pontoons in the inner and outer harbour.

The design shows a 21-berth pontoon for the inner harbour, accessed by a floating tide ramp, while the outer harbour would accommodate 50 craft on a larger pontoon.

Two car parks are proposed, one by the outer harbour quay and the other behind the sea wall.

On the harbour arm an octagonal information and harbour office would be built.

The Isle of Wight based firm made an initial application in March, but it has taken a further five months to reapply for listed building consent due administration delays on its part.

Planners will now write a report, refusing or recommending permission, for planning committee councillors, who will then decide at a meeting in September.

It is understood that the harbour company are also preparing to submit a further application for a permanent boaters’ washing facility and a bistro on the site of the fishermen’s buildings in the inner harbour, next to the lifeboat hut.
