The battle for Bulloch Harbour
Locals want the historic harbour left much as it is, but developer Richard Barrett’s company Bartra is appealing the second refusal of its plans for a residential and commercial development there
Bulloch Harbour as it is today is 200 years old this year. “There would have been celebrations, only for this,” says Monica Smyth, when I call to her home on the quay.
Celebrations are on hold in the face of what Smyth, who has lived and worked here for 60 years, along with hundreds of other objectors, see as a battle to preserve a treasured place of local heritage with a history dating back to medieval times.
