Cattewater Harbour Commissioners have been awarded £150k of Government funding towards the extension of the Barbican Landing Stage (BLS) via the Marine Management Organisation’s (MMO) Fisheries and Seafood Scheme (FaSS).
Captain Richard Allan, Harbour Master, and CEO of Cattewater Harbour Commissioners said:
“We are delighted to announce that our plans to extend the facilities at the BLS by adding three new pontoons has been awarded funding from the MMO and can now go ahead.
“We are grateful to the Marine Management Organisation for their help and support through the grant process, without FaSS support, this project would have not been possible at this time.
“Since taking back the management responsibility of the BLS we have invested considerable sums in improvements to the existing structures, this grant will help create additional capacity and for more maritime businesses to operate from the heart of our waterfront.”
The pontoons will now be commissioned, and it is expected that the additional three pontoons will in place by early spring ’24. Businesses interested in operating off the new pontoons next year are encouraged to contact the Harbour Office via email@example.com to indicate their interest at the earliest opportunity.
