Public information display notices are now on display upstairs in Ullapool Ferry Terminal and in the harbour buildings. They are intended to help our local community and members of the public visualise the outcome of the planned widening of Shore Street, creation of a new sea wall and promenade and installation of pontoons.

16 July 2021 Planning Submission

Marine licence paperwork has been submitted to Marine Scotland and the consultants are pulling together the final elements of the planning application for submission in the coming days. Following the three public consultation events the architects have worked through several hundred comments and pulled together a very basic uncluttered design for the promenade. The design consists of a palette of natural products including recycled timber and the use of an absolute minimum of concrete.  A detailed design will be worked on over the coming months.  

You can also view the design statement which is a distillation of all feedback received following the public consultations.
