Oban Bay Harbour Authority - developments

Postby cpedw » Tue Aug 21, 2018 10:11 am

Results from the online survey are now available http://obanharbour.scot/information/oban-bay-management-group/stakeholder-submissions/ in four pdfs. There were over 550 responses, almost unanimously opposed to a CMAL harbour authority, over 80% from leisure boaters.

Oban Bay Management Group (CMAL, Argyll & Bute Council and NLB) are holding another Public Meeting on Thursday 6 September at 7.30pm at Corran Halls, Oban, to discuss feedback from the survey and to update the community on OBMG activity on the harbour authority arrangements.

There has been a move from the Oban Bay Stakeholders Group (fishermen, yotties, local businesses etc.) to investigate establishing a Trust Port in Oban but this will take time and a lot of money. Meanwhile, councillors from Argyll & Bute Council have started to show an interest in extending the existing Municipal Port as an interim measure.

CMAL should never have control over Oban or any other port they operate from...
