Client

Cochin Port Trust

Status

Ongoing

Estimated Value

Rs. 10 Crores

Cochin is an all weather natural harbor and the Cochin Fisheries Harbour (CFH) is one of the major fishing harbours in Kerala. CFH is located on 7.8 acres of land and though the harbor was developed many years ago, it had failed to keep abreast with the changing requirements. The project aims to utilize the land available in the CFH by looking at modernizing of entire CFH area, dismantling old structures if required and generating revenue by leasing out facilities or land to businesses providing seafood processing and fishing technology related products and services. As land is a scarce and vital asset of the Harbour, there is need for developing a land use plan to make optimal and the most efficient utilization of the available land.

The project will prepare a detailed Master Plan for effective land use at Cochin Fisheries Harbour.
