Newlyn Pier and Harbour Commissioners have an overall development programme for the harbour for the next 10-15 years. The programme includes bringing all existing harbour property up to standard for best use, increased storage and workshops, a boatlift facility and more quayside capabilities.
Specific projects within the programme, subject to feasibility, licensing requirements, demand from users and funding availability include:
Elements of this programme are brought forward for development when funding is available for them. Sources of grant funding have specific objectives and criteria that determine which projects would qualify for assistance and they vary widely in timeframes and scale. Some improvements can be self funded but the availability of grant funding is essential to larger projects and enables the overall programme to be accelerated.
The Fishmarket refurbishment is nearing completion, with EMFF support, providing full 24-hour operations in fully refrigerated space. It has a 150kW solar energy system installed by Community Power Cornwall Ltd that will provide the newly expanded refrigeration systems with power.
Community Power Cornwall Ltd enables community ownership of renewable energy installations and their installation will reduce energy costs to the harbour.
Sandy Cove provides low cost, temporary facility sites for early stage companies in the marine sector, storage for fishing gear, permit parking and boat repair space. Phase one is nearing completion with the first tenants, processors of discarded fishing nets into 3D printer cartridges, already on site. This phase has been supported by an EMFF grant.
High speed wifi will be available on site from the end of the year via Wildanet, also to any adjacent properties.
Further container storage will be provided to meet a backlog of demand over the next few months.
Any inquiries on the space available at Sandy Cove are welcome at the Harbour Office.
Newlyn Pier & Harbour Commissioners would like to thank those members of the local community who gave up their time to attend Part 1 of our Board Meeting on Wednesday 7th November.
The Commissioners and the Harbour Master understand the deep-seated pride that local people feel with regard to Newlyn Harbour and its rich heritage – as well as the passion and commitment that underpins its hardworking fishery. However, we would like to make clear the following principles that guide our future aspirations:
We now have a series of decisions to make about the best way forward for the Port and will update this website with further information as soon as it is possible for us to do so.
