Ramboll has secured the key advisory role to the Poole Harbour Commissioners to help them finalise their long term development masterplan for the Port of Poole UK.

A multi-disciplinary team of Ramboll experts will assist the Commissioners in refining development options for the port and carry out a number of studies relating to the masterplan, including a full environmental impact assessment.

The Commissioners have developed the draft masterplan and undertaken extensive consultation with local businesses and other interest groups. Ramboll is now tasked with refining the draft plan and assisting the Commissioners in deciding on several key development options that include building a new marina and facilities for servicing offshore windfarms.

Ramboll port planners, transport planners, environmental scientists, archaeologists and specialists in ecology, contaminated land, water, noise and air quality will all be involved in this key advisory role. There are a number of environmentally sensitive areas around the port with nature conservation an important consideration.

Poole is a strategically important south coast port. Condor ferries has recently increasing its services operating from there. The port requires the masterplan to guide its development through the next thirty years.

Nick Clarke, Head of Ports and Marine at Ramboll said, “Our expertise will identify a clear development route to help the Commissioners secure the future of the port and harbour.”
