Cowes Annual Report Published

The Cowes Harbor Commission Annual Report for 2016-2017 has just been published online.

Harbor Master Capt. Stuart McIntosh will deliver a presentation of the Annual Report at CHC Annual Public Meeting on Thursday, 25th May 2017, at 1900 at the Island Sailing Club.

The Annual Public Meeting is an opportunity to report on the commission’s progress over the past year against CHC’s Strategic Plan objectives and will include updates on the Port Master Plan, the Cowes Outer Harbor Project, and the Sustainable Maintenance Dredging Management Plan.

The plan to develop and agree the ‘Sustainable Maintenance Dredging Management Plan’ for the Medina Estuary was first proposed in CHC’s Strategic Framework of 2011 and has been reiterated in CHC’s current Strategic Plan 2016-21.

According to CHC, the commission’s aim is to develop a sustainable and cost-efficient Maintenance Dredging Management Plan in partnership with stakeholders, which is underpinned by long-term monitoring and promotes alternative dredging methods where appropriate.
