Contribute to support quality local journalism
A proposal has been submitted to extend the boat compound at Banff harbour to allow the creation of more dry berths and a new repair area.
Aberdeenshire Council has applied for the planning permission at the port, which is a grade A listed structure.
The boat compound would extend into part of the nearby public car park and the work would also involve moving a concrete sculpture.
In a document submitted as part of the planning application it said: “ The extended compound will include part of the public car park as well as a section of the SGN owned gas works, both of which sit adjacent to the existing compound.
“A new gated entrance will also be created to provide access from the car park while the existing gated entrance on Telford View will be moved to improve access for vehicles from the slipway in the outer basin.
“It should also be noted that the current proposals tie in with a wider drive to enhance the overall facilities and equipment on offer at Banff Harbour.” This has included the construction of a new slipway in the outer basin and the harbour is also looking to purchase a boat hoist.
