Cowes Harbour Commission (CHC) is committed to promoting and delivering sustainable harbour development policies to safeguard existing and support new business, services, investment and employment.
CHC aims to take a leading role in assisting Cowes and the River Medina to strengthen and fulfil its potential as a ‘world-class centre of yachting’ and major transport and commercial gateway for the Isle of Wight.
Port Master Plan
CHC has proposed the development of a stakeholder driven strategic harbour and marine services development plan that identifies current and long-term growth strategies to future-proof the port’s infrastructure and services whilst complementing the wider, local and regional plans and policies.
Cowes Outer Harbour Project
The Cowes Outer Harbour Project has provided Cowes and East Cowes (together 'Cowes') with a sheltered harbour via the delivery of the Cowes Breakwater and Eastern Channel. Over a 10-year period, CHC invested over £4.6 million into the Outer Harbour Project to maximise the potential of Cowes Harbour and its adjacent waterfront marine employment sites for the long-term economic future for all harbour and Island stakeholders.
