I got a very brief glance of the new plans for the development where slipways 2 and
3 are today I managed to photograph them, sorry about the quality, click on the link to view them 2 copies of each sheet http://www.michaelsbookshop.com/610/id26.htm
On the positive side the developer is the same one who has made an excellent job of restoring The Custom House.
Personally I would have preferred something more sympathetic to the existing architecture there.
The plan is that slipway No.1 will continue to be used winding houses 2 and 3 will be demolished – the positive side to this is that they are made of damaged asbestos crumbling into the car park and the negative is that they are of historical significance related to WW2 – slipway 2 is pretty much unused and in poor condition, slipway 3 has had a lot spent on it and has been used recently to repair wind farm service vessels.
My understanding is that it is only slipway No.1that is commercially viable at the moment.
