Local people are being asked to express their views on proposals for the future management of Southwold Harbour Lands .
Councillors from Southwold Town Council and Waveney District Council have proposed the creation of a new strategic body which would oversee harbour operation, bringing expertise and experience to the management of the port.
The consultation begins on Saturday January 19 with an initial drop-in event in Southwold and will also include an online survey for stakeholders and members of the public to complete. Information gathered from the consultation will then be considered before a final recommendation is made for councillors to consider in March.
Cllr Mark Bee,Leader of Waveney District Council, said: “This consultation is a critical part of an open and transparent decision making process about Southwold Harbour. We want local people to be central to the harbour’s future and their voice matters.
