Our Organisation

Operating Newlyn Harbour for the Benefit of our Stakeholders

In collaboration with the Harbour Master/Chief Executive and his Management Team, we are committed to delivering services, facilities, expertise and skills of the highest quality to all those who use Newlyn Harbour. To further the flow of information from all sectors of the harbour an Advisory Board meets on a regular basis drawing advice and guidance from members with a broad range of skills and experience all related to the port.

You are welcome to take a look at our Advisory Board Terms of Reference.

Rob Clifford-Wing
Chair, Newlyn Pier & Harbour Commissioners

“The role of the Advisory Board is to establish stakeholder representation and a means for Newlyn harbour commissioners to seek views on key issues relevant to stakeholders with particular responsibility of ensuring that stakeholder views are heard at board level.


That representation includes:


  • local communities 
  • harbour users – both commercial and leisure and their representative organisations 
  • local economy, such as local businesses including suppliers
