  • Date lodged: 20 September 2016

To ask the Scottish Government whether it will provide an update on the work of the Stranraer taskforce, including when it will next meet.


Scottish Government established the Stranraer Taskforce to work with Dumfries and Galloway Council and a number of other local partners, to explore the potential for the future of the Stranraer Waterfront, following the relocation of ferry services from the town.

The Taskforce was intended to be a short-life group. It met on four occasions between February 2012 and April 2013. It was agreed at the last meeting that the partners would continue to work together to deliver the Taskforce's aims.

Dumfries and Galloway Council has the primary responsibility for and lead role in implementing plans in relation to the regeneration of Stranraer Waterfront. Officials are kept informed of progress as necessary.
