West Quay Users (Fishing) Group Meeting

The West Quay Users (Fishing) Group met on Thursday 21st November 2013 at the Newhaven Lifeboat Station for their 6 monthly update. Harbour Master Dave Collins-Williams informed the group of the latest news and developments from the Port and covered the usual agenda items of moorings, health & safety, security, port operations, communications, dredging and fees/insurance issues.

These meetings are a good opportunity for the Harbour Master to bring to the attention of the fishermen all the latest relevant safety issues and MAIB reports that affect fishermen. He was also able to give the fishermen the good news that the Harbour had been excluded from the Beachy Head West Marine Conservation Zone (MCZ) which had been designated that day by DEFRA.

It is hoped that a representitive from Sussex IFCA would give a talk to the group at the next meeting. Presentations were also made by Graham Easton, Sector Manager of HM Coastguard and a representitive of the Ports Police Unit. The next meeting will be held in May 2014.
