Lymington Harbour 2016 Annual Report & 2017 Harbour Guide Available Now

2016 Annual Report

Our 2016 Annual Report is now available, and what a year it’s been! We took another step forward with a public consultation on revised proposals for our Town Quay development plan, and appreciate all the feedback. We received 100 comments on the revised proposals from local people, visitors and local businesses.

We have also just completed the three year trial in which we placed dredged mud along the Solent facing edge of the marsh where wave erosion causes most marsh loss. We hope this beneficial use of mud will slow or arrest marsh loss and defer future breakwater construction.

There was a 5.4% increase in the number of visiting boats in the 2016 calendar year thanks to another fine summer and good autumn weather.

Another successful project was completed in 2016 with a major upgrade made to the Lymington Town Sailing Club’s washrooms. The Commissioners made a £60,000 contribution to this project in return for visitors to our Dan Bran pontoon having access to the new facilities. The new shower and washrooms offer a significantly improved experience with greater privacy and comfort for both Club members and visitors alike.
