STRANRAER WATERFRONT DEVELOPMENT

A MULTI-million pound redevelopment programme for Stranraer waterfront has been adopted as a priority by Dumfries and Galloway Council.

Along with the regeneration of Dumfries town centre, the waterfront project in Stranraer will be at the forefront of the council's corporate plan over the next four years.

That means it will be at the front of the queue for funding as soon as the ferry operator Stena Line leave the harbour. It also means that research can begin in earnest as to the future of the vast waterfront, to the delight of local councillors.

Speaking after last week's Corporate Policy Committee meeting, Stranraer councillor Robert Higgins, vice-chairman of the committee, said it was good news for the town.

"This means we can prioritise funding for the project as soon as Stena Line leave the town now" said Mr Higgins.

Members of the committee, including those from the east of the region, were unanimous in their decision to prioritise Stranraer with Dumfries.
