Lymington Harbour Commissioners (LHC) are committed to seeking guidance from the Advisory Group that has been appointed by the Board to represent the beneficiaries and stakeholders of Lymington Harbour.
The Advisory Group is a key part of good governance, enabling stakeholders to bring issues to the attention of LHC, and assisting the flow of information to the Lymington community. In particular, the Advisory Group is consulted on all matters substantially affecting the management, maintenance, improvement, conservation, protection, or regulation of Lymington Harbour and its navigation.
The Advisory Group is currently made up of 11 representatives from key stakeholder organisations, with a self-appointed Chairman. The composition of the Advisory Group is reviewed periodically to ensure it reflects the community which LHC serves.
The Advisory Group meets at least twice a year, and aims to provide an effective two way communication mechanism between LHC and its key stakeholders and harbour users.
The Advisory Group performs an essential role, distributing information so that stakeholders are kept up to date and have an opportunity to ask questions and have their views represented to LHC.
The Advisory Group plays an active role, especially with regards to consultations on LHC’s Strategic Plan which is reviewed every five years and sets out the LHC’s vision, plans and policies for the next five years, as well as the ongoing harbour protection project.
