Transport Scotland approved the Port Ellen Terminal Development (PETD) project at the Outline Business Case stage in the autumn of 2023. The project team has since been refining the preferred option design to ensure it meets the requirements of the ferry operator and harbour stakeholders.

The project is approaching the start of the detailed design works stage. Public meetings will allow the project team to present the developed design drawings and visualisations of the proposed works to the community for feedback before moving into the detailed design work and to provide consultation to support the required consent application processes.
