Members Wanted For Scarborough Borough Ports Development Group

Members Wanted For Scarborough Borough Ports Development Group

Published by the Yorkshire Coast Radio News Team at 12:36pm 11th November 2015.

Scarborough Borough Council is looking to recruit three independent people to its newly formed Ports Development Group, which will focus on the strategic development of the borough’s three ports: Whitby Harbour, Scarborough Harbour and Filey Coble Landing.

The group is being established to provide strategic support, advice and guidance to the council’s Cabinet Member for Harbours, Assets, Coast and Flood Protection, Cllr Mike Cockerill. It will assist with the development of a Strategic Plan for the ports, which will include contributing to reports and recommendations to the council’s Cabinet. The group will also look at the promotion and regeneration of the ports, including how best to win new business and how the ports can benefit stakeholders and the wider coastal community.

The group will consist of seven members: three independent people, three borough councillors and Cllr Mike Cockerill as Chairman. The group will be supported by one of the council’s directors, its Harbourmaster and Regeneration Project Development Manager.

Cllr Mike Cockerill, Cabinet Member for Harbours, Assets, Coast and Flood Protection said:

“We welcome applications from anyone who feels they could add value to our new strategic approach for developing the borough’s ports. The group’s role will be strictly advisory with no involvement in the day to day operational management of the ports. We therefore need people with vision that can look at the bigger picture and, through strategic development, help us shape the future of our ports as viable assets to support our local economy for many years to come.”

Anyone interested in the role can find out more information about how to apply at: scarborough.gov.uk/pdgvacancies

The closing date for applications is Sunday 6 December.
