Dinghy Pontoon proposal at Gallanach Bay

Robert has received a message from a Mr Ian Leaver regarding a proposal for community landing stages for the Isle of Kerrera Development Trust. The following is a quotation from this message:

I’m working on a community landing stages for the Isle of Kerrera Development Trust. IKDT are looking to install two pontoons on either side of the Kerrera crossing, close to the ferry slips.

The mainland side pontoon will hopefully be installed roughly in the position indicated on the picture I’ve attached [below]. The pontoon is for the Kerrera residents to be able to access the mainland safely in their own boats rather than rely entirely on the ferry. We will be putting an honesty box and a gate on the pontoon in an attempt to generate some income for upkeep and insurance and to prevent abuse of the pontoon as a permanent mooring place. Your members may find it useful for dinghy access and if your members would prefer to make an annual contribution rather than use the honesty box I’m sure we would welcome it.

Proposed Dinghy Pontoon at Kerrera Car Park

Please get in touch with me if you have any questions or comments or foresee any problems
