Councillors Given 2016 Start Date for Bantry Harbour Redevelopment

Councillors Given 2016 Start Date for Bantry Harbour Redevelopment

#BantryHarbourPlans – According to the Southern Star newspaper, councillors during a recent western committee meeting in Cork, were given a date for the much-mooted ambitious plans for Bantry Harbour.

Plans for the multi-million euro re-development of the town's inner harbour were once more outlined to the members, including the detail that Phase One, which will cost up to €7m, will see the dredging of the inner harbour, improvements to the town pier, an amenity area, and the construction of pier side pontoons.

But the meeting heard that it could be almost two years – in 2016 – before the work gets underway.

Brendan Keating, CEO of the Port of Cork company, told councillors that the Phase One work was necessary to ensure that Bantry Bay will become a key regional port for the south west.

To read more of the plans, the newspaper has a report here.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
