Plans are being drawn up to sell off Stranraer's former ferry terminal site as part of town regeneration moves.

The project is a joint venture between Dumfries and Galloway Council and Stena Line UK.

The site at the East Pier has been vacant since Stena moved its Irish Sea operation to a new £200m facility at Cairnryan two years ago.

A marketing strategy will be developed between the local authority and the company.

The process to find a private developer for the site is due to get underway in the new year.

Meanwhile, the council is awaiting the outcome of its bid for £200,000 of European funding to support the development of marina and community projects - as part of the Stranraer regeneration.

If successful, it would take the amount still to be allocated to £489,000.

Among the projects on the table are the provision of a mobile stage for major events in the town and improvements to Agnew Park.
