Kirkstead Marina

There are a shortage or moorings on the River Witham in Lincolnshire, especially moorings that can cope with the fluctuations of water levels between winter and summer. In addition, the town of Woodhall Spa is becoming a minor tourist destination and as a result a land owner is proposing to develop a large marina and associated holiday accommodation. Moss Naylor Young have been part of the team developing these proposals which involve a mile long access canal and lock to lift the marina above the flood plain – this being to assist year round land-based access to the boats and holiday accommodation, flooding of the waterspace will to some extent occur but storage capacity and access will be unaffected. Additionally, renewable energy initiatives aimed at making the marina energy self-sufficient are proposed. Moss Naylor Young have also provided revenue forecasts for the marina.
