The Harbours are much loved and valued assets, from a range of commercial and leisure perspectives and which have an important role in contributing towards the Council’s Corporate Strategy Objective of:
Boosting the economy, supporting businesses and enabling employment
The management of the Harbours is undertaken by the Harbour Services Team. The Ceredigion Harbour Management Policy provides the strategic framework that underpins and informs how we fulfil our obligations as a Harbour Authority and how we deliver the Service. The current Policy was approved and adopted by the Council on the 19 October 2010 and, as such, a review is now timely.
Your views are important to us, so please take the opportunity to have your say on the draft Policy by responding to the questions posed in this consultation. This will ensure that your response can be effectively and efficiently collated and, ensure that it is considered as part of the consultation response evaluation.

1) Why are we reviewing and updating the Ceredigion Harbours Management Policy?
The current Policy was approved and adopted by the Council on the 19 October 2010 and, as such, a review is now timely.
In reviewing the Policy, we have looked to retain the elements that have worked well over the years, whilst proposing to change and update some aspects to reflect experience and feedback. This includes addressing any gaps between the Policy and current Harbour related activities which have been identified and/or arisen from experience.
The proposed changes can be considered as tweaks rather than transformational, thus building on the Policy which has served stakeholders well for over a decade. The overall Policy and, the proposed changes, recognise and reflect that the Harbours are multi-use, shared use facilities and the Council’s overall intention is to strengthen the Policy so these can continue to be managed in a fair, transparent and balanced way for the benefit of all stakeholders.
