Michael Murray was appointed Convenor of the Harbour Commissioners for 2022 at the Statutory meeting held on the 14th January 2022 stating he would give commitment to the Harbour to carry on the excellent development of the Port over the years and continue the good work undertaken in 2019. Mr Murray recognises and relishes the challenges facing the Port of Fraserburgh over the next few years particularly in respect of the fishing industry but emphasised the importance of continued Harbour development to the town of Fraserburgh and surrounding district as outlined in the Masterplan which was completed in 2019 and updated in 2021. Fishing remains the core business of the port however the importance of developing opportunities for diversification of business is acknowledged. This can be seen by the use of Fraserburgh harbour as the operations and maintenance port for the Moray East Offshore Wind Farm. All of this alongside the established areas of ship repair and commercial traffic, etc. are in the interests of all Harbour users and the economy of Fraserburgh.
The Convenor endorses the quality of facilities and services available in Fraserburgh and, in commending these to you, is confident that you will not be disappointed.
