Porthleven to receive £500k to help with storm damage repairs

The MMO has today made the announcement that Porthleven will receive a total of £501,177.47 to help with storm damage repairs. This money comes from The Small Ports Fund.

The details of the grant is £434,786 to repair collapse of wall at Fisherman’s Quay, remove large granite blocks partially blocking the sluice and fix damage to the hospital corner wall, loss of capping to harbour head wall and undermining of slipway. A further £66,391 to fix damaged caused by wooden baulks to Inner Harbour shifting, damaging roads, ladders and mooring chains.

I really welcome this news, as Porthleven took the full force of the weather during the storm period. It is good this money can now be used to fully rectify the damage from the storms which hit Porthleven.
