The Consultative Committee is independent from the Harbour Board, sets its own constitution and elects its own chairman. We have a number of documents in our library that explain how it is set up and operates. We also publish the minutes of its meetings. If you are interested in joining the Committee which acts as a “critical friend” to the Harbour Board, there is an expression of interest form that you can complete on line (see link below).

Fal Estuary Marine Safety Committee
The Marine Safety Committee consists of core members representing the harbour authorities and advisory members who are practitioners of a wide range of water related activities. The main committee meets every 2 months and review activities, incidents and complaints. They can recommend safety improvements to the harbour authorities and approve procedures for operations that affect more than one harbour authority. The advisory members meet annually and are encouraged to identify new risks and to put forward ideas for safety improvements. We welcome applications for advisory members and an application form is included in the list of documents below.
