April 2, 2019 - The Public Company Sea Property is developing the complete investment technical documentation for the construction of the ferry dock in Kamenari. The realisation of the project begins after the choice of the lessee of the ferry piers in Kamenari and Lepetani, says Radio Jadran.
As explained by Sea Property, the construction of a future dock will be the responsibility of a prospective tenant, who will be required to invest 320,000 euros in the new dock within the long term lease of the ferry line.
The construction of the pier is a project that was initiated in 2017 by the Sea Property to dismantle existing ones. However, unregulated legal property relations set aside the job.
The long-term coastal bargaining agreement in the Kamenari and Lepetani ferry stations, which Sea Property signed in 2004 with AD Pomorski Saobracaj (Maritime Transport) expired on 31 December last year, but the Sea Property did not specify when a new tender would be announced.
At the last session last year, the government agreed to the conclusion of the Sea Property to determine the amount of annual compensation for the use of the harbour in Kamenari and Lepetani for ferry transport and the evaluation of factors affecting the initial price. Sea Property announced a public call for the lease of the property in Lepetani and Kamenari, with the obligation to build a new port in Kamenari.
The minimum annual rental fee/fee for the use of the property consists of a fixed part - 230 thousand euros, which amounts to two per cent of the total revenue from the sale of the ferry tickets.
Pomorski Saobracaj has so far been the sole owner of this part of the coast and the only ferry operator. A new lease means that it would have 4,011 square feet of land in Lepetani with its associated aquarium space next to the dock and mooring area of 7,200 square meters, and 3,959 square meters of coastline in the Kamenari with its associated aquarium space next to the dock and mooring area of 14,700 square meters.
The Lessee is obliged to submit a monthly report on the sale every month upon payment of the variable part of the rent.
As explained by the Sea Property, the remediation time of the existing coastal infrastructure, including the ramps for the protection of walls at the seaports, is at most three years from the date of the conclusion of the contract, as well as that after two years the tenant builds a new dock in Kamenari.
It is a condition that the lessee can use all leased state property for up to 15 years.
The plan solution of the location is defined by the Spatial Plan of Special Purpose for the Coastal Area, which retains the existing ferry docks in Lepetani and Kamenari, until the final realisation of the crossing over Boka Bay, after which they will examine their need for economic retention from the Sea.
Otherwise, a new dock would have to be built next to the current northern ramp to unload the car in the direction of Verige. The ram accessory, with its function and purpose as it is, will be 14 meters long.
