A closing date for expressions of interest in Perth Harbour, situated along Scotland’s River Tay, has been set by property consultancy Bidwells.
In July 2014, Bidwells were asked to seek expressions of interest on behalf of Perth and Kinross Council, who wished to explore options in order to secure the future of the harbour.
Interested parties have been asked to outline their business case and explain how their investment will maximise the use of the harbour as an economic asset.
The harbour has four main berths and provides a lower cost alternative to larger coastal ports.
Graeme Duncan, head of commercial property at Bidwells said: “We have received a number of expressions of interest in Perth Harbour, highlighting its attractiveness as an investment opportunity in central Scotland.
“We expect the council to make a decision on whether to progress to the next stage of the process in February 2015.”
Stage one of the marketing process will close at noon on Monday 24 November, 2014.
