Aberdeen Harbour Board has reinforced its ongoing commitment to expansion plans at Nigg Bay it was announced, but a final decision on the project still awaits the necessary planning consents.
 
At its October meeting the Board maintained clear support for the project to continue, but recognized that a final decision would be subject to the outcome of applications for a Harbour Revision Order and two Marine Licences, which are currently under review by the Scottish Government.
 
Chief executive of Aberdeen Harbour, Colin Parker said, “Our Board remains committed to the proposed expansion of Aberdeen Harbor into Nigg Bay, but it is only right that we defer making a final decision until we have all the relevant information, and all necessary funding streams have been fully formalized.”
