    Aberdeen Harbour remains on track for expansion

    News // October 12, 2016

    Aberdeen Harbour Board has reiterated its commitment to expansion plans at Nigg Bay, 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.

    The 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”.
