Plans for a new Harbour Hub in St Andrews have been unveiled.

The town's Harbour Trust is seeking approval to build a £500,000 facility to house the nearby cafe, toilets, and a shower.

It's aimed at revitalising and future-proofing the town’s mediaeval harbour.

Working with Newburgh-based Planning and Architectural Consultants A S Associates, the Trust's proposal is to create a fresh, modern look featuring a mix of wood cladding and render to complement the nautical surroundings, together with a zinc roof.

It's now seeking input from the wider community.

Ken Sweeney, Chair of St Andrews Harbour Trust, said: “St Andrews Harbour is both a vibrant working harbour and a much-loved and valued part of the town’s landscape, attracting thousands of local residents and tourists to enjoy every year.

“Such an important historical and commercial asset is deserving of high-quality facilities which will not only meet the practical needs and expectations of harbour users but the wider community.

“Having maintained and protected the harbour for over 125 years, every effort is therefore being made to create proposals which are sensitive to the historic asset of St Andrews Harbour and its location within the wider Conservation Area, benefitting both the function of our working harbour and the aesthetics of the area."
