Port development programme

Development Plan 2015 – 2020

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: 

  • North Pier renovations and repurposing
  • Facilities for Cannery Slipway repairs and maintenance
  • Replacement of buildings on the Strand
  • Additional quayside to the south of the Penlee lifeboat station beside the pontoons
  • Further stages of site improvement on Sandy Cove
  • A boatlift and hardstanding facility capable of handling the largest boats in our fleet

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.
