Research in Stranraer Harbour

DEMAND for a marina in Stranraer Harbour is to be probed by consultants.

Results of a study commissioned by the Small Towns Initiative are likely to be known early in the New Year.

And at the same time, work is to be carried out at the West Pier which could be used by a marina development including water and electricity supplies.

In conjunction with Scottish Enterprise Dumfries and Galloway, the Sti are to commission a study into the desirability of a small marina development.

Consultants are now being sought who will carry out research into the likely number of boats which will use such a facility both local and tourers.

The study will assess the potential of Stranraer being able to reap the kind of benefits enjoyed by a number of harbour operations, particularly in Northern Ireland.

This week, Lord Stair, Sti chairman, stressed they were just at the stage of a feasibility study which would examine opportunities for development.

"If the report identifies a potential we would need to discuss any future work with all interested parties, especially Dumfries and Galloway Council who own the harbour"
