Advisory Group (BHAG)
The Bembridge Harbour Advisory Group (BHAG) was formed in February 2012. Meeting every 2 months, the primary purpose of the BHAG is:
"To bring all major stakeholders together to discuss all and any aspects that primarily affect the Harbour, its' Management, its' policies and its' plans - both present and future.
It is the sole conduit between all major stakeholders for transmission of information between all attendees and allows a full exchange of views and thoughts.
Based on all such views and thoughts, it allows the Harbour Management to take and make decisions in the full knowledge of the major stakeholders."
Minutes of meetings are held at the Harbour Office and can be viewed on request. Anyone wishing to make representations to the Group can do so via the relevant member as listed below:
