Moray harbours drop-in workshop

Press release   •   Aug 03, 2016 13:51 BST

A drop-in workshop will take place this weekend to hear people’s views on the future development of council-owned harbours in Moray.

Individual development plans are being drawn up for all six harbours – Buckie, Burghead, Hopeman, Findochty, Portknockie and Cullen.

The drop-in session, which is being held at Lhanbryde Community Centre on Saturday from 9.30am to 1pm, will form part of a consultation with harbour users and the wider public.

Buckie and Burghead are primarily commercial harbours while the others are recreational.

The council’s harbour operations manager, Duncan Brown, said: “Elected members agreed earlier this year to consult with users and local communities on development plans for the harbours which are a valuable asset to Moray both in terms of commercial and recreational use.

“Anyone with an interest in any or all of the harbours is welcome to attend Saturday’s workshop and help generate ideas for a bespoke plan for each harbour.”

Moray Council area stretches from Tomintoul in the south to the shores of the Moray Firth, from Keith in the east to Forres in the west. The council and its 4,500 employees respond to the needs of 95,510 residents in this beautiful part of Scotland, which nestles between Aberdeenshire and the Highlands.

Famous for its colony of dolphins, fabulous beaches and more malt whisky distilleries than any where else in Scotland, Moray is a thriving area and a great place to live.

Headquartered in  Elgin, the administrative capital of Moray.
