#Ports&Shipping - The Welsh Port of Milford Haven has welcomed Pembrokeshire County Council’s decision to approve a revision to the Milford Waterfront development’s outline planning consent.

The planning committee met yesterday (26th June) to discuss the application and voted unanimously to support the scheme, subject to agreeing a Section 106 Agreement.

The Port received a resolution to grant planning consent in 2015, however since then a number of amendments have been made following further feasibility studies and changes in market conditions. Among the main amendments are the retention of a listed building thanks to changes made to the entrance to the development, improved connectivity with the town and a leisure-led focus as opposed to retail.

During construction, approximately 100 jobs will be created on site with a further 36 in the supply chain, and over 600 job opportunities are set to be created once the development is fully operational.

Neil Jenkins, Development Director at the Port of Milford Haven, said “We’re delighted that the planning committee has granted a resolution for outline consent for the Milford Waterfront development. The estimated 400,000 additional visitors that will be attracted here on completion are expected to generate £9 million of expenditure for Milford Haven alone and it is a significant project for the whole of Pembrokeshire. This support means we can now progress with our plans on a phased basis to create a unique year-round visitor destination with a vibrant trading and living environment.”

Dublin Port Information

Dublin Port Company is currently investing about €277 million on its Alexandra Basin Redevelopment (ABR), which is due to be complete by 2021. The redevelopment will improve the port's capacity for large ships by deepening and lengthening 3km of its 7km of berths. The ABR is part of a €1bn capital programme up to 2028, which will also include initial work on the Dublin Port’s MP2 Project - a major capital development project proposal for works within the existing port lands in the northeastern part of the port.

Dublin Port has also recently secured planning approval for the development of the next phase of its inland port near Dublin Airport. The latest stage of the inland port will include a site with capacity to store more than 2,000 shipping containers and infrastructure such as an ESB substation, an office building and gantry crane.

Dublin Port Company recently submitted a planning application for a €320 million project that aims to provide significant additional capacity at the facility within the port in order to cope with increases in trade up to 2040. The scheme will see a new roll-on/roll-off jetty built to handle ferries of up to 240 metres in length, as well as the redevelopment of an oil berth into a deep-water container berth.
