Lymington Harbour Commissioners (LHC) are committed to consulting the harbour Advisory Group that has been appointed by the Board to represent the beneficiaries and stakeholders of Lymington Harbour.
The Harbour Advisory Group is an important part of good governance, and enables stakeholders to bring issues to the attention of LHC. It also assists in the promulgation of information to the local community. The Harbour Advisory Group is consulted on all matters substantially affecting the management, improvement, maintenance, protection, conservation, or regulation of Lymington Harbour.
The Harbour Advisory Group is currently made up of 12 representatives from key stakeholder organisations, with a self-appointed Chairman. The composition of the Advisory Group is reviewed periodically to ensure it properly represents the local community and interests which LHC serves.
The Harbour Advisory Group meets at least twice a year, and aims to provide an effective means of communication between LHC and its harbour users and stakeholders.
The Harbour Advisory Group plays an active role, and is especially encouraged to participate and contribute to consultations on LHC’s Strategic Plan. The plan which is reviewed every five years sets out LHC’s vision, plans and policies for the next five years.
