St Mary's Harbour

The Duchy of Cornwall is to review the way St Mary's Harbour on the Isles of Scilly is managed. The review is taking place now, following the securing of funding for an extension to the harbour and for other improvement works. The hope is that we will be able to find a management arrangement which allows for more community engagement, as the current arrangements date from 1890. The review is also taking place in light of recent litigation, which has thrown up questions about the potential implications of the Duke of Cornwall's status as the Statutory Harbour Authority for St Mary's.

The news follows the announcement by Patrick McLoughlin MP on August 14th, that the Department for Transport will fund improvements to St. Mary's Harbour as part of a £10million investment in the Isles of Scilly. Work is set to include a widening and extension of the pier, as well as improved passenger check-in and freight-handling facilities.
