LAG Rejects Funding For Porthcressa Moorings

Porthcressa

An application for funding to place permanent moorings in Porthcressa Bay has been rejected on appeal by the Local Action Group.

An application by Mrs Charlie Carss, for an undisclosed sum, was rejected earlier this year but ScillyToday understands Mrs Carss had been appealing that decision on the grounds of incorrect process being used.

However, an appeal found that the correct review process was used by LAG.

Amanda Pender from LAG says the applicant could resubmit if the project changes in the future.

The project received approval from the Marine Management Organisation (MMO) in January.

We were unable to contact Mrs Carss for a comment.
