MYH expansion plans
Mylor Yacht Harbour has announced plans to provide berthing for an additional 30 boats, a project that could see more than £1m invested.
Cornwall Council has been approached for pre-planning advice as part of the harbour’s consultation process but harbour MD, Neil Salter, is keen to stress any expansion will retain the features that make the harbour a Cornish jewel.
“The extension we’re proposing is fairly modest,” he said. “We anticipate that it will enhance the site whilst not changing the views, the ambience or making any significant demands on either the environment or the shore-side infrastructure.”
The outline proposal is to extend the marina in a northerly direction, adding additional berthing onto the existing pontoons to create a further 44 marina berths.
This would necessitate the removal of 14 existing swinging moorings to give a net gain of 30 additional boats.
Dredging of around 8000m² will also be required for which MYH has applied for an MMO licence.
“Our marina project, which began to take shape last year, is still subject to various approvals and areas of consultation before we can even think to put in a full planning application – so while pre-planning advice is an exciting next stage for us we still have a long way to go.”
