The Strategic Plan is the route map for the development of Lymington Harbour. It sets out Lymington Harbour Commissioners (LHC) ideas and vision for the management of the harbour over the next five years. The plan is supported by a Baseline Document which sets out a wide range of detailed information about the harbour, providing a backdrop to the plan.
Whilst managing LHC’s annual budget, the Strategic Plan ensures that the Commissioners do not lose sight of the broader objectives over a rolling five year period.
Over the first four months of 2015, LHC carried out wide stakeholder consultation on the review of the vision, objectives, plans and policies for Lymington Harbour for the period 2015-2020. Following consideration of the feedback received, an updated Strategic Plan was published on the 20th October 2015.
The 2015 consultation also brought forward initial proposals for the development of the Town Quay area to improve visitor mooring facilities, and the Dan Bran pontoon to provide additional ‘resident’ berths. LHC will take time to properly consider the views expressed on these proposals before bringing forward alternative options for further consultation in the first quarter of 2016.
