Bantry Inner Harbor Plan Includes Dredging

The Port of Cork yesterday outlined plans for Phase 1 of the Bantry Inner Harbor Development which the Port of Cork will undertake on behalf of its subsidiary company, Bantry Bay Port Company.

The scheme marks the start of the regenerating of the inner harbor and is in keeping with the total Inner Harbor Development scheme which was developed by the Bantry Bay Harbor Commissioners in 2012 and planning permission was granted in 2013.

Now being advanced by the Bantry Bay Port Company, the scheme will provide a more sheltered harbor environment and marina with increased water depth and improved pier facilities which will promote fishing and tourism activities in the Bantry area.

Phase 1, which is likely to cost €8.5m, will consist of the following principal elements:

– 20 berth Marina (quayside pontoons);

– Dredging to a depth of 4 meters to allow vessels access to the inner harbor;

– Remedial works to Town Pier (widening and extending);

– 4,000m2 of reclaimed landscaped amenity area;

– Construction of 60m long floating breakwater pontoon;

– Beach nourishment at Cove site.

It is expected that the scheme will start in Q4 2015 and will be complete in Q1 2017. The work will be phased in order to minimize impacts to pier operations and to minimise traffic and amenity impacts for the town.
