Cowes Harbour Commission’s (CHC) jurisdiction extends across the northern half of the Medina Estuary and out into the Solent.
The whole area is designated and protected for the quality of its coastal habitats and forms part of a larger site made up of key features in and around the Solent. CHC has responsibilities for management of the designated site as well as its duties as a trust port and harbour authority.
The pages in this section provide useful information about key documents, our environmental responsibilities, and the wildlife of this beautiful estuary.
