A GREEN light has been given for a new marina at Corpach, writes Alison Chadwick.

Highland Council has awarded planning permission to Caol Regeneration Company for the Thomas Telford Corpach Marina, a new all weather yacht marina and public slipway at the entrance to the Caledonian Canal. The capacity of the marina is planned for 45 yachts with additional space for much smaller, shallow draft boats.

In February, local business Northern Light was commissioned to begin the process of sourcing funding opportunities for this project and at a later stage to manage the tendering process for construction contracts.
