Foreshore Redevelopment - when will we see any progress?

ING Real Estates have agreed to update the Bo'ness public on their ambitious foreshore development proposals at a public meeting next week.

Representatives from the company and Falkirk Council will attend the area forum meeting in Kinneil Primary School.

£150m Regeneration Plan

ING outlined its £150 million regeneration strategy — revealed to acclaim almost exactly one year ago — at a previous forum meeting.

But that was many months ago and Bob Barr, forum convener, believes it is vital that local residents are made aware of subsequent developments — especially with little hard evidence of the project moving forward.

Forum Meeting on 17 November

And he has urged people to turn out in force at Thursday's meeting to hear what the experts have to say and to put their questions to everyone involved.

Marina Development Questions

Mr Barr said: "At the previous meeting a number of searching questions were asked of ING Real Estates, not all of which were answered to everyone's satisfaction, particularly in relation to tides, dock access and the silt build-up in the dock.

"In the intervening months the whole thing has gone a bit flat and I believe it's time ING Real Estates and Falkirk Council came back to Bo'ness and brought us up to speed on progress.

"I know questions are being asked around the town and I also know that a degree of scepticism surrounds the entire regeneration strategy.

Your can hear what they have to say - so if you can, attend and have your say as well!
