CHC Annual Public Meeting
I am pleased to announce the publication of both our Annual Report 2015-16 and also CHC's new Strategic Plan for the period 2016-2021. Digital versions of these documents can be viewed on our website and I hope that you will find them interesting as well as informative.

The Strategic Plan outlines the Commission's strategic and guiding policies and objectives together with timelines that will help deliver the plan over the next 5 years.

Next Wednesday, 29th June, is our Annual Public Meeting, taking place this year at the RORC Cowes Clubhouse on the Parade. 

At the meeting, the Commissioners and I look forward to sharing some of the key sections and highlights from the Annual Report, as well as delivering an update on the Outer Harbour Project design optimisation consultation that ended on 21st June, and also presenting key sections from our new 5 year Strategic Plan for Cowes Harbour.

Best regards,
