PLANS for Pine End Works - the central piece of the Lydney Harbour development jigsaw are to be unveiled for public scrutiny by Forest seafood boss Richard Cook.

He proposes to create a new state-of-the-art smokery and eel farm incorporating a visitors’ centre, shops and restaurant as the foundation for the overall harbour rejuvenation.

Mr Cook, pictured right, who runs the Severn and Wye Smokery business at Chaxhill, has been chosen by the Environment Agency to redevelop the harbour as a going commercial concern.

On December 3, he will hold a public exhibition in Lydney Town Hall of his plans to breathe new life into the old Pine End Works on Harbour Road.

The public reaction will help shape the fine details of plans for the site, which is also a key part of the Forest of Dean 2018 Allocations Plan..

The ultimate aim is to make the historic harbour a major cog in the local economy and a prime tourist attraction for Gloucestershire and the South West.
