Clyde Marina, Ardrossan : Social and Economic Impact Assessment

Clyde Marina at night Clyde Marina at Ardrossan, on the west coast of Scotland, was built in 1997 from unused commercial dock that had once been part of the vibrant ship and heavy industry in the area. Since its inception, it has developed into a busy 250 berth marina and boat yard. Building on this success, Clyde Marina approached GVA RGA Waterfront to undertake an assessment of the economic impact of the creation of an outside basin at the marina, which would add a further 500 berths.

To provide suitable recommendations, GVA RGA carried out two key tasks. Firstly we reviewed existing expenditure and employment data that was provided by the Marina, and then we examined secondary data sources to obtain industry benchmarks for expenditure and employment. Based on this research, we were able to forecast a positive employment and expenditure impact that this development would have for the marina, at both a local and national level. Further to this, we were able to suggest focus points for recommended research to be undertaken by Clyde Marina.

This case study is an example of how GVA RGA Waterfront, by providing thorough research and clear guidance, can assist marina owners in their decision making process.
