Unlike the majority of harbour authorities, Gloucester Harbour Trustees (GHT) does not own or operate any port facilities. The harbour is thus, basically, a stretch of water in a predominantly rural area with few adjacent communities or other interests that might be affected by the day-to-day activities of GHT. As a result, active interest in a previous Advisory Body dwindled over several years and it was eventually discontinued.
At present, a newsletter on GHT’s activities is circulated twice a year and representatives from local organisations such as sailing clubs and other recreational users, local commercial maritime interests, fishery interests and local councils, are invited to join the Trustees at the annual stakeholder lunch. Additionally, GHT's annual report is circulated to key stakeholders and published on this website (see link to latest report below).
We welcome comments from any of our stakeholders, both specialists and the general public, and aim to respond to concerns as quickly as possible.
