UK. CHC responds to IW Council Medina Valley Plan consultation

Monday, 21 December 2015

Cowes Harbour Commission (CHC) submitted (on 17th December 2015) a formal response to the Isle of Wight Council's Medina Valley Area Action Draft Plan Consultation. The CHC response highlights that in the Commission's opinion the draft Area Action Plan (AAP) for the Medina Valley provides insufficient protection for existing commercial marine sites with good water access, to meet both current and future needs.

The draft AAP outlines a number of strategic objectives that are supported by the Harbour Commission, including the aim to protect marine based jobs and water frontage sites. However, the proposed mix of uses for Medina Yard contradicts this approach. This proposal puts the long-term future of Cowes Harbour as a marine-based construction centre seriously at risk.
