COWES NEW HARBOUR GETS GO AHEAD
Friday October 29th, 2010
The much awaited East Cowe’s marina development has at last been granted full planning permission and work is set to commence in spring 2010. The project will include a 300-berth marina that will be incorporated into the Cowes Outer Harbour Project along with a marina building, public landing facilities, and temporary parking.
The project has also been granted outline planning permission for a permanent car park, 60 room hotel, 12 private houses and commercial premises. Permission for the water-based sections of the Outer Harbour project - the outer breakwater and a new channel - have already been granted.
CEO of Cowes Harbour Commission and Harbourmaster, Captain Stuart McIntosh said of the news, 'This decision and planning consent is great news and a major step towards delivering the Outer Harbour Plan that will finally make Cowes a truly sheltered harbour, improving safety... It is also a significant step towards securing the long term future prosperity of the harbour and the local economy.'
