Stranraer Port has lay abandoned for some years now.  Sadly the local economy has suffered,  it would not cost vast amounts to make t safe.  It would open a well of possibilities for the town for many years to come. 

A community owned Shipping Base with excellent rail links is what the town needs.  The twp roads A77 and A75  leading to the area are in dire need of upgrading and is such a long drive it puts people off coming back.  If there were better transport links the town could invite various Ships from all over the world and UK including Waverly who in very very early stages  said they would be happy to visit if the pier was in operation. Bearing in mind it docks in Girvan every year...

Other opportunities to provide a rail and sail service would be beneficial.  Please remember the UK government offered a contract to a shipping firm with no ships.  

With Brexit looming and talks of long queues at dover due to immigration control ,then the main way into EU may change to here.   I think the town  should have the main Harbour made fit for purpose before any other plans go ahead.  This is and always should have been the main priority.
