Cowes Harbor Commission recently reported that the harbor maintenance dredging project will be carried out in the early part of 2017.
The dredging works will be performed at Shepards Wharf Marina and approaches, the Town Quay mooring basin and the Royal Yacht Squadron basin.
These maintenance dredge works were originally planned to take place in 2016 but have been re-scheduled for 2017 due to delays in completing the MMO (Marine Management Organisation) consents process.
According to CHC, the maintenance dredging has been contracted to Jenkins Marine.
The dredging works are planned to start in first week of February 2017 with a projected completion date of 16th March.
A Cowes Local Notice to Mariners will be issued soon with more details and navigational information for harbor users.
