Cowes Ferry Terminal

Planning permission granted

Planning inspectors have now given Red Funnel approval to replace its existing East Cowes terminal and nearby buildings, along with up to 100 homes. This follows a three day appeal against Isle of Wight Council's refusal to grant permission to Red Funnel's controversial multi-million pound plan for its East Cowes Terminal.

Red Funnel has now placed an order with Wight Shipyard in East Cowes for an additional 41m high-speed catamaran.
