How does this tie in with the Marina?
We understand that the Marina is one of the major reasons people come to visit Watchet. It is at the heart of the town, it’s beautiful and it’s part of Watchet’s maritime identity, so any development that we propose would complement the Marina, and help to build on the benefits and importance of Watchet as a coastal town.
We are (currently) looking at developing the southern portion of the East Quay, with the understanding that the northern portion is run by the Marina Operator. Our understanding is that the northern portion will, in time, be positively enhanced for boat owners and maritime-related industries, so we anticipate that the southern portion could be positively enhanced for visitors and local people. We have regular meetings with Watchet Harbour Marina and are working closely with them to ensure the best possible result for a mutually beneficial development.
