Plans were unveiled last month for a complete regeneration of Harwich’s Navyard – the industrial shipping area of Harwich’s sea front has been used for 50 years by Mann Lines Limited, who could locate if the proposals are approved.

This opportunity could see 300+ new homes, food outlets and a market square, as well as a new promenade and many opportunities for employment.

Bill Binks CEO of Mann Lines said: “Navyard has served us well for over 50 years but with the nature of the shipping business ever changing its time to re- locate locally to enable us to build a stronger business in the future. The regeneration of the Navyard site is both an exciting and important opportunity for Harwich. With our close association to the town over many decades the views of the community are important to us in helping to shape the future plans for Navyard.”
