Paper boatsAberdeen Harbour Board has reinforced its ongoing commitment to expansion plans at Nigg Bay it was announced yesterday (Tuesday), but a final decision on the project still awaits the necessary planning consents. At its October meeting the Board maintained clear support for the project to continue, but recognised that a final decision would be subject to the outcome of applications for a Harbour Revision Order and two Marine Licences, which are currently under review by the Scottish Government.

Chief Executive of Aberdeen Harbour, Colin Parker said: “Our Board remains committed to the proposed expansion of Aberdeen Harbour into Nigg Bay, but it is only right that we defer making a final decision until we have all the relevant information, and all necessary funding streams have been fully formalised.”
