Port to hold two Annual Stakeholder Meetings to engage with the local community

13/07/2022

The Port of Milford Haven is hosting two Annual Stakeholder Meetings this year to update members of the community on its latest developments and listen to feedback from the public.

Tom Sawyer, the Port’s new Chief Executive who joined in April, along with Chair, Chris Martin, will provide an overview on the organisation’s performance and vision, as well as updates on projects such as Pembroke Dock Marine, Milford Waterfront and its core business - servicing shipping on the Waterway.

Tom commented “I’m looking forward to meeting our stakeholders, many of whom I won’t have come across yet, in Pembroke Dock and Milford Haven. The sessions are a chance for the public to hear about what has been happening at the Port over the past year as we start to recover from the effects of Covid, but also about how our plans for future growth are progressing.”

He continued “One area I’d welcome feedback on is how we can do more to help our local community in a time when the cost of living is increasing and having a huge impact on peoples’ daily lives. We want to help where we can and understanding the extent of the problem is the first step towards addressing this.”

The events take place on:

Thursday 28th July at the Pater Hall, Pembroke Dock, 4.30-6.30pm

Friday 29th July at the Pill Social Centre, Milford Haven, 3-5pm

To register please email prdepartment@mhpa.co.uk or call 01646 696100 and specify which date you would prefer, along with any questions you would like to ask the team. There will also be an opportunity to join the meetings online (visit www.mhpa.co.uk/ASM for more details).

Notes to Editors

Port of Milford Haven

The Port of Milford Haven is the UK’s top energy port and Wales’ busiest port handling around 20% of Britain’s seaborne trade in oil and gas.  It is widely recognised in the industry as the energy capital of the UK.

The Port, along with the cluster of energy-related businesses along the Waterway, is a key driver of economic activity in Pembrokeshire, attracting inward investment and supporting over 4,000 jobs.

The Port of Milford Haven also owns and operates Pembroke Port and Milford Dock.  Activities such as cargo handling, ferry operations, fish landing and cruise calls as well as a first class marina are spread across these two sites.

One of the most prominent on the West Coast, the Port is in the heart of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, the only Coastal National Park in Great Britain. It is marked as a Special Area of Conservation (SAC) and has many areas designated as Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).

The Port of Milford Haven is a trust port – an independent, commercially run organisation that has statutory responsibilities governed by its Acts, to maintain and improve navigation and the provision of Port and Harbour services and facilities.  Additionally, the Port provides significant financial and in-kind support to a wide variety of local causes.  All profits are retained within the business to fund these objectives.
