Marina Design Plans for Stranraer Harbour

A fifty berth marina design in Stranraer Harbour has been lodged with council planners.

Scottish Enterprise Dumfries and Galloway want to build two sets of yacht pontoons off the Breastwork and the West Pier as part of the town's waterfront redevelopment.

Marie Findlay, of Scottish Enterprise Dumfries and Galloway, said together with the council it plans to build a marina facility which aims to attract private investment in the Waterfront Project. She said:

"We are presently putting in the ground work to make facilities available that will attract private investment.

"Marinas like the one in Kirkcudbright are currently over subscribed and people are on waiting lists to find residential berths for their yachts.

"Water sports are popular than ever, and with speed restrictions on Lake Windermere there's great potential for Loch Ryan."
