Stranraer Harbour Dispute Resolved

FERRY operators Stena Line and Dumfries and Galloway Council have finally settled their dispute over fees for Stranraer harbour.

The ferry company has paid the council almost £600,000 after settling the matter out of court. The money is for harbour fees and interest dating back more than a decade.

It follows an earlier court ruling in favour of the local authority, which collects an annual fee based on traffic volume through the port. Stena lodged an appeal with the Court of Session but later withdrew it.

Council lawyer Brendan Kearney said:

"I am pleased to report that the issue has been resolved without further legal proceedings".
