Cairnryan Development Concerns

CONCERNED villagers in Cairnryan have been urged to put their demands down on paper before plans for a new P&O/Stena ferry terminal are finalised.

Anxious locals want the village to benefit from the £44 million development and not just the ferry companies. A new walkway and speed cameras are just two proposals on their wishlist. And they have been advised to set up a community group to work in tandem with the developers towards those aims.

Locals met with officials driving the port development this week - the first meeting since the latest plan was made public three weeks ago.

Concerns over the volume of traffic, speeding and noise dominated the agenda.

Again locals left the meeting unconvinced by the answers they received from the officials of both ferry companies and also the consultancy firm working on the development. Cairnryan Community Council chairman James Coulter said:

"I feel that in the last two meetings we have had with the ferry companies we have not had answers.

"I think a lot of people went to that meeting looking for something but they have left disappointed."
