A GREENOCK-based marine services company has drawn up plans to transform its harbourside base.
Clyde Marine has applied for planning permission to build a two-storey office building and a workshop at Victoria Harbour, replacing three temporary buildings .
The quayside would be upgraded, including resurfacing, and there would also be new fencing and lighting.
Designs by Greenock firm Nicholson McShane Architects are now pending consideration by Inverclyde Council planners.
Application documents state: “Clyde Marine Services Ltd intends undertaking significant investment to improve its facility at Victoria Harbour to bring it up to modern standards. The proposed improvements will enhance the working environment and visual appearance of the site.
“The intention of the proposal is to comprehensively upgrade the office, welfare facilities and quayside to reflect the professionalism and quality of the business.”
The design statement continues: “The form and materials of the building are modern interpretations of a traditional dockside warehouse aesthetic.
“The development will comprehensively upgrade and improve the quayside. The temporary buildings will be removed and the surfacing made good and improved (supplemented with additional cobbles).
“The development will help safeguard the company’s future on the site and its contribution to the local economy and employment.”
Clyde Marine operates throughout the west coast, providing tug and harbour services and also passenger/cruise vessel charter.
