Save the fishing boats of Cove Harbour Aberdeen 2015

This petition had 5,717 supporters

In April 2014 the fishing boats at Cove Harbour were issued with two weeks eviction notice. The fishermen formed a group and employed a solicitor. After their initial response there was silence until now. Another letter has arrived this week - please help save the history and traditions of the community.

The owner of Cove shore has requested that the fishing boats that are currently stored there are removed and has issued a two week deadline. Whilst access is still permitted it will be impossible to fish for a living out of the harbour due to the practicalities; storing a boat elsewhere, driving it to the shore on a road trailer, transferring to a beach trailer, completing the launch, parking up the car and trailer. Multiply this by the ten or so fishermen that work their pots from Cove. In addition if cars and vans are found to be parking in the harbour area, proceeding will be raised to prevent this! Obviously this ultimatum will also have huge implications for the folks who utilise the harbour for casual and recreational users. Once again we would appreciate your support.
