Chairman's newsletter december 2017
If the number of letters/emails I have received this year are indicative of your concerns, then you have very few. Things must be going well and I hope you are enjoying problem free boating!
A number of things have been happening that the Committee and myself have been involved with. However, none of these have reached a point where I have firm information that it is appropriate for me to share with you. Hopefully it won't be too long before I have something positive to say.
These issues include silting, where a consultant has been employed by Cyngor Gwynedd, to make recommendations on repairs/modifications to the Harbour entrance Groyne. You will find the latest dredging strategy and the Consultant's report under "Dredging" on our website www.PMBHA.CO.UK . I will share more with you when the decision is made on what is to be done. Additionally we are waiting to see the report from a Harbour Survey carried out only last week. More on this in due course as well, but the decision has already been made to dredge the entrance in early spring.
Also in discussion with the Hafan is the possibility of an automatic fuel pump. More on this when I have news.
The proposed fees for 2018 are being discussed within the Council and you will have been advised by The Hafan that there is likely to be a 2% increase. However this increase is yet to be voted upon by the Cyngor Gwynedd Board, but is likely to be endorsed.
There is no more for me to say other than Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. See you at the AGM the date and venue for which will be advised to you shortly. Because of practicalities over meeting venues we have decided this year to split the formal part of the AGM from the information exchange session we have in the past held immediately after closing the AGM. I will of course let you know when and where this is to be held.
Lets hope next year we have another quiet boating year!
