The Dunbar Harbour Trust is actively seeking local and national funding to improve the historic Battery on Lamer Island - the prominent site between the Victoria and Cromwell Harbours in the town. The Battery, which has a rich and varied history dating back to 1781, was last occupied in the 1930s and the Trust is looking to sensitively protect the existing structure and improve access to the area, but also wants input from the community and visitors to the harbour on further improvements that may be made to the Grade B listed building to create a new public space for the town for future generations.

Steven Anderson, the Director of the DHT responsible for the project states that "We are focusing on 4 key themes for the project: improving access to and inside the Battery for all users, the protection of the existing structure of the Battery making the most of the existing historic features, to add to the Battery experience and create an improved public space and destination within the harbour and, finally, to use this project as a catalyst to improve the general harbour environment for all users, locals and visitors.”
