I reviewed these notes i August 2021. Lots of promises for regeneration but no mention of the harbour so no changes
Update Summer 2019

These notes were reviewed in July 2019. There are no changes here. Although local government has allocated a large amount of money and is making a lot of noise about regeneration it would appear that the harbour infrastructure will not be changed in the near future.

These notes were reviewed by Don in April 2015. No changes were made and, as the Berthing Master told us "Nothing has changed here in a hundred years"
Update November 2013

Updated 20th November 2013. They still haven't set any harbour dues for visiting boats so you'd still get away with it.
