Keep up to date with all that’s happening at Amble Marina

20-06-2015 - Summer 2015

Freehold

Negotiations were recently completed with Northumberland Estates for Amble Marina Limited to acquire the freehold to the site it occupies plus some land and water beyond our current boundaries. 

Michael Irwin

Many of you will know Michael from Coquet Yacht Club and Friars Goose. Michael worked with us last summer where his hard work, brilliant attitude and knowledge of boats really impressed. Michael has been persuaded to join our small team full time.

Dredging

We last dredged the marina basin in September 2009 and are now looking to dredge again in Winter 2016. The Marine Maritime Organisation are the authority responsible for granting licenses to dispose of mud at sea. We are roughly mid way through their application process with the public consultation beginning this week. We hope to have a definitive date and license within the coming months.

New Hoist and Dock

March 2015 we applied to Northumberland County Council for Planning Permission to build our own Hoist and Dock. After a brief consultation we were advised by NCC to withdraw our application in order to address a number of objections. We are working with a number of consultants to ensure a speedy resolution and will keep you updated.

We have until March 2016 to resubmit our plans with alterations. Full details available here: http://publicaccess.northumberland.gov.uk/online-applications/applicationDetails.do?activeTab=summary&keyVal=NLTRC1QSHVJ00

New Gates

In early Spring new entrance barriers were installed to improve safety and security to the site. Some old access cards will not work on the new entry barrier – if this is the case we will happily swop yours for one that does. The new barriers provide better access for cars with trailers, some subsidence issues have been addressed and the CCTV has been updated.

Public Slipway

Warkworth Harbour Commissioners and Northumberland County Council have installed gates at the top of the Public Slipway used by many of our trailer boat customers. We have a key in the office to the gate available to use by any bertholders. Members of the public must contact the Harbour Master.

Big Fish

Our 2015 Big Fish Competition is well underway, heading up the leader board is currently David Dunn with a 12lb Pollock.
