UK: Penzance Dredging Gets Green Light

Plans to improve the harbours that connect Cornwall with the Isles of Scilly have received support from Local Transport Minister Norman Baker.

The minister announced work at St Mary’s and Penzance harbours can go ahead, subject to final clearances and securing European funding.

Norman Baker said:

“We are putting at least £8 million into this scheme which shows that the coalition government is serious about protecting the livelihood of the Isles of Scilly.”

“Improved terminal buildings will provide better conditions for passengers. Changes to the harbours themselves will ensure new vessels can still access the port protecting this route for use by residents, freight and holiday makers.”

The work involves dredging at Penzance and pier widening and improved freight handling facilities at St Mary’s.
