The Element


Living In The Element 

The Element, Western Harbour is the place we call home. Prospect life began here in 2004 as plans were made to redevelop the forth ports. Since then there has been major redevelopment in the place we call home. On this page you’ll find information about our part of the city and the facilities and services that are available locally.
