COLNE MARINA

14th September.

At the August Parish Council Meeting, the Parish Council unanimously objected to the proposed design of the Colne Marina development  which will extend out to the deeper channel of the Creek making it more difficult for larger craft to access St Osyth Creek and the Boatyard. An open day was held on 13th September where buoys had been placed in the channel to demonstrate where the mooring pontoons would be positioned.

Residents and boat owners at the boatyard have raised strong concerns about the mooring extensions and the impact on access to the Boatyard. Brightlingsea shipping pilots, piloting larger ships into the scrap wharf have expressed serious concerns about the safety issues affecting ship movements which also need to use the channel. They have stated that they will refuse to pilot shipping into Brightlingsea Harbour, if the proposed design is adopted.

St Osyth Boatyard have started a petition against the proposed channel restrictions. This is available for interested parties to sign at the Boatyard office.
