The Owners of the Port of Fleetwood, Associated British Ports, have created a new business entity to manage the company’s diverse real estate portfolio.
Associated British Ports Property Development is headed by Sebastian Bull as Managing Director. He was formerly CFO of ABP until February this year and has extensive real estate experience working with More London Development Ltd. prior to joining ABP.
Wyre Dock Development Ltd. has maintained dialogue with ABP both directly and indirectly and is aware that the Port of Fleetwood figures high on the list of priorities that this new property group is charged with tackling. Meetings in London and Fleetwood have taken place in the past three months to determine options that ABP Property Development is considering for their Fleetwood holdings. Understandably these take into account the conceptual scheme of Wyre Dock Development and attendant rail transport link which remains of singular importance for the town and strategic new investment.
Wyre Dock Development is currently awaiting strategic decisions by ABP’s property company and its new team on immediate steps which will transform Fleetwood’s riverfront sites in urgent need of holistic regeneration.
