Falmouth Harbour Commissioners is a statutory harbour authority originally set up by Act of Parliament in 1870. It became a competent harbour authority for the purposes of managing pilotage under the Pilotage Act 1987. The Organisation has evolved over time as its roles and responsibilities increased. In 2014 a strategic re-organisation was put into place creating two business arms operating under their own brands.
Falmouth Haven operates the recreational boating assets of FHC and has its own web site at www.falmouthhaven.co.uk
