Harbouring Concerns
DETAILED plans for the £8.2 million transformation of Bo'ness Harbour have been submitted to Falkirk Council.
(extract from Bo'ness Journal)


And outline planning permission has also been sought for the £150 million foreshore, dock and harbour development — which could feature an amazing bridge, the design of which is based on the original version of the famous Falkirk Wheel.

The first phase of the 10-year project will see the dere.lict harbour transformed into a tourism and leisure attraction. More than 150 homes and town houses will also be built.

And thanks to Falkirk Council's development surveyor Colin Frame, the Journal was this week able to gain a close-up look at the detailed harbour plans — submitted by ING Real Estates Limited.

Water is a feature developer ING is used to working with, given that the company is Dutch based. So it's no surprise that the firm has come up with inventive plans for making the most of the harbour location.

The first phase of the waterfront development, if approved by Falkirk Council, will see the harbour transformed beyond recognition within three years.
