Newlyn Harbour – Technical Reports to Support Expansion

Newlyn Harbour – Technical Reports to Support Expansion

Lead Organisation: Newlyn Pier & Harbour Commissioners

Investment Priority: Supporting Local Business

Fund: Strategic Business, Enterprise and R&D Infrastructure

SPF awarded: £100,000

Location: St Ives

SPF funding will allow Newlyn Pier and Harbour Commissioners (NP&HC) to gain valuable technical knowledge to advance expansion plans. Our goal is to provide a new facility for the future of the fishing fleet and wider marine industries including lifeline shipping services to the Isles of Scilly, coastal trade, and offshore renewables, whilst maintaining and improving our historic harbour in the heart of Newlyn.

This work will provide detailed surveys and reports including topography, bathymetry, water supply, existing infrastructure condition, detailed design for the restoration and enhancement of the South Pier that includes fuel storage and supply, and vehicle access to our site at Sandy Cove.

These reports are essential in realising the huge potential that Newlyn Harbour has, for food and energy security of the UK and for providing high quality jobs throughout Cornwall and beyond.

Jonathan Poynter, CEO of NP&HC says, “As a trust port we have limited resources to devote to long term development, so it is a huge benefit to have received this grant for our project Newlyn Harbour – Technical Reports to Support Expansion from the Shared Prosperity Fund as a part of the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Good Growth Fund. With this support, NP&HC can advance our strategic vision for the future, one that will deliver significant benefits for Newlyn, Cornwall and the UK.”

NP&HC are working with WSP ltd to deliver the NP&HC strategic vision and renewed prosperity for Newlyn and Cornwall.

Richard Scott, Technical Director at WSP says “WSP have been working with the NP&HC over the last 3 years to help further their ambition for port renewal and expansion. We are delighted that this work has been appreciated and that the Shared Prosperity Fund will support the development of design artifacts to the next level. We share in the excitement of our client that Newlyn Harbour has a significant role to play, based on its unique history, trading opportunity and geographic location, for food and energy security in Cornwall and the UK”
