Harbour Dredging to Start

DREDGING at Stranraer Harbour is due to get underway next week. Work at the harbour, which will stay open during the dredge, will start on Monday and is scheduled to go on over the winter months until mid February.

The dredge will be carried out by Fleetwood based Wyre Waste Management.

Harbour users have been contacted about the procedure, which will see boats being moved from one half of the harbour to the other while dredging takes place.

Material will then be dumped at Beaufort Dyke in the North Channel after the council secured a licence for this.

Tony Fitzpatrick, the council's Group Manager for Economic Regeneration, confirmed that the dredge is due to start and added that this is a positive sign that Stranraer's Waterfront Project is forging ahead. Mr Fitzpatrick said:

"We are delighted to see the work starting, with the company happy to work through the winter to get the job finished.

"Although this is a maintenance dredge, it is clearly a sign that things are starting to happen at the Waterfront."
