The Harbour Commissioners invited me to attend the first part of their recent meeting to introduce themselves and for us to exchange information . I found it helpful.

The proposals for stopping silting in the Marina was presented at an exhibition in the Council Chamber and comments listened to. Councillors will be aware that it would be unwise to make any statements on what they think of the proposals prior to an application for planning permission being received from TDC for discussion and comment at a meeting of our own Planning Committee.

A meeting will be arranged between the Harbour Commissioners and the Town Council in late September or early October so that the Commissioners can report to the Council on what they have done in the 2015 season and what maintenance they plan for the winter months. THE meeting will also start discussion on the charges to be levied in 2016 bearing in mind comments made by Council, harbour users and the Harbour Commission.
