THE OPTIONS REVIEW

A new Penzance Harbour Scheme project designed to improve the Penzance –
Isles of Scilly Link facilities at Penzance Harbour has been launched by the Town Council and Penzance Seafront Forum, who are working together in the newly created Penzance Harbour Scheme Management Board.

The first stage of the project – a review of options for improving the harbour facilities – will be undertaken by Hyder Consulting and be paid for by the Department for Transport with a contribution from the Town Council.
Hyder Consulting have received a detailed brief from the Penzance Harbour Scheme Management Board that has public consultation at its heart and entwined throughout the process.

Your first opportunity to find out more about the Options Review, ask Hyder and the Harbour Scheme Management Board questions, and put your ideas forward will be at a Public Meeting at St John’s Hall on 17th November, 7:30pm start.

If you are unable to attend the public meeting or would prefer to put your ideas down in a letter or email you can do so by writing to:

THE CONSULTANTS’ BRIEF
The Penzance Harbour Scheme Options Review will take place within a set of strict constraints, including: reduced funding levels, short timescales (dictated by funding), existing harbour development consents, the likely economic impact on Penzance and the Isles of Scilly, and the need for public support.

The Options Review will aim to identify a preferred scheme that responds efficiently to the operational and functional needs of the Penzance –
Isles of Scilly Link, integrates well with the town, capitalises on community benefit wherever possible, and does not hinder community ambitions for the future development of the harbour.

Hyder Consulting will review the various options previously suggested,
and study any current proposals for improving the essential harbour
infrastructure that serves the Link.

The full Consultants’ Brief is available on the website.
