Schull Harbour Development FS 005852

Schull Community Harbour Development Co Ltd has applied for Foreshore Approval to develop Schull Harbour. This process of Approval has now entered the Public Consultation Phase. Advertisements have been placed in The Southern Star, The Irish Examiner, The Skipper and the Marine Times.   (click to view copy)

The project itself consists of improvements and an extension to the Pier,  Breakwaters,  a pontoon marina with 225 berths ( of which 58 are for visiting boats) and on-shore facilities, etc.

Full planning permission is in place and this has recently been extended to 2022.

A considerable amount of time, energy and money have been expended to get the project to this stage.  Little or no improvements have been made to Schull Harbour for decades and should this development go ahead,  it will radically improve the Schull Harbour for all its users.  In addition,  it will provide a huge boost to the economy of Schull,  Ballydehob,  Goleen,  The Mizen and the West Cork area generally.

Schull and whole of the Mizen area, has been starved of any economic investment.   For the future of our Communities this must stop.   If you agree with this proposal it is vital that you let your Public Representatives know!

The Department of Housing, Planning, Community and Local Government can be emailed directly with any comments concerning this   proposal,  email      Please use the reference FS005852 in all correspondence.
