Barry Community Water Activities Centre took another major step forward this week with the signing of the Land Lease. This follows the signing of the Water Access Licence last week.
The Land Lease is for the agreed site at the East end of the Mole, which is the land that juts out into No 1 Dock, and is opposite Morrison’s Supermarket.
The Trustees (pictured) signed the Land Lease with ABP so that the slipway and infrastructure works can start as soon as the Building Consortium complete the new road to the Mole, which spurs off the new Barry Island road.
The chairman Mr Chris Basten, said “This is an ideal site for the training in sailing, canoeing, rowing in fact almost every form of water sports. We are delighted to have concluded the land and water leases and licences, which means we can create a community facility that will make great use of the Barry Waterfront, and hopefully inspire people to take to the water.”
The community voluntary organisation is seeking more volunteers, supporters, partners, users, and especially funding streams and grants. Several phases will result in a very special building that can accommodate training, changing rooms, showers, toilets, and other related facilities.
