New blog: Planning Permission Granted

You may have seen the news –

Greyhope Bay have been granted planning permission for our ‘Dolphins at the Battery’ project – a viewing platform, exhibit space, and coffee point at Torry Battery to be created using repurposed shipping containers that could now be open as early as June this year.

And it feels big.

It is big.

Emotional even.

Emotional because of the energy invested to navigate the twists and turns. Energy that has been maintained and fuelled by incredible people that have come along this journey with me, sharing generously their time and expertise to get Greyhope Bay to this significant step. 

Networkers, engineers, creatives, leaders, marketeers, planners, accountants, architects, designers, archaeologists, ecologists, historians, office mates.

Yesterday I was joined by two of them taking in the view and visualising the realisation of our plans. Architect and co-founder Gokay Deveci (Scott Sutherland School) a believer from the start and Bryan Gray (Dynamix Modular) who takes on the conversion of our shipping containers.

And I felt thankful, thankful to them for braving the wind…

And thankful to all those that have helped us make our mark and moved the seeds of an idea to a tangible reality – in the top image Gokay stands on the exact footprint of our project!

We cannot wait to continue to build our community of support and with the collective effort of the city of Aberdeen we can make it happen!
