A GREENOCK-based marine services company has been given permission for new harbourside facilities.
Inverclyde planning officials have approved Clyde Marine’s plans for a programme of upgrading works, designed by architects Nicholson McShane, including new offices plus welfare, workshop and storage space at Victoria Harbour.
Current portable buildings will be replaced by modern high-specification units with better accessibility and improved energy efficiency. Finishes and design draw on historic dockside buildings but with a modern twist.
Founded in 1913, Clyde Marine provides tug services, charter cruise vessels and vital harbour services all over the west coast of Scotland from its Greenock base.
The development will help safeguard these activities and maintain the visibility of Greenock’s maritime industry in the medium to long term.
At the time of the application project architect Douglas Nicholson said: “We’re pleased to be supporting Clyde Marine’s plans for the future.
“The new development will provide a positive contribution to the historically important Clyde waterfront and serves to demonstrate the firm’s confidence in, and support for, the local area.”
A previous redevelopment proposal, drawn up in 2020, was later withdrawn.
