New business units at Burghead harbour
A TERRACE of four new industrial units has been completed at Burghead harbour.
The development has been part funded by the Scottish Government and the Moray Fisheries Local Action Group European Fisheries Fund (EFF) Axis 4 programme.
The units, which range in size from 58sq metres to 110sq metres, have easy access, parking and disabled toilet facilities.
They will provide five or six jobs for new or growing businesses in the area.
Three of the units have already been leased - to a marine engineering firm, an artist and a cooperative which provides training and recycles furniture and wood.
Interest has also been expressed in the fourth unit.
The project is part of the last tranche of EFF Axis 4 funding, with the programme scheduled to close at the end of October.
Administered by Moray Council, over the past three years the fund has helped to 21 projects ranging from a joint seafood initiative led by the Moray Firth Partnership, new and upgraded heritage facilities in Burghead, Lossiemouth and Buckie and a sailing school in Cullen.
