Thank you from Whitstable Biennale – June 2014
Mike Wier, Harbour Master, received some wonderful feedback from the organisers of the Whitstable Biennale recently. These sort of comments are great to hear and help to demonstrate the work done by harbour staff to support activity in and around the harbour.
“We’ve had great audience numbers, great feedback, great press coverage, and we feel that it was our best festival yet. We couldn’t do it without the help of the Harbour, and you and Glyn have been such an enormous help and support to the Biennale. It was great to be able to site Laura Wilson’s work in the Harbour – and for her to be able to to film on the Pluto, I know it has meant a lot to her. It was also great to be able to stage the experimental music event in the South Quay Boatshed on the opening night. And all of your help with the Ships event was absolutely key to it being able to happen, and to make it a success. It was a great finale to this year’s festival, and we’ve had so many positive comments back from people.” Sue Jones, Director, Whitstable Biennale
No increase in port marine charges for Whitstable Harbour – April 2014
At a board meeting earlier in the year Whitstable Harbour Board were pleased to support a recommendation from the Harbour Master that all fees and charges for port marine services are not increased in the current financial year.
The setting of fees and charges is always a delicate balance between being mindful of current market trends and trading conditions and generating sufficient resources to manage a safe and viable harbour environment.
Cllr Pat Todd, chair of Whitstable Harbour Board, said “Whitstable is, first and foremost, a working harbour and the board takes its responsibilities toward supporting the working aspects of the harbour very seriously. We hope that this freeze in port charges will help harbour users and their businesses, and help ensure their sustainability.”

The shallow waters of the Thames estuary provide fertile territory for the fishing industry. The flow of brackish water from the streams and marshes of the north Kent coast make a particularly beneficial environment for oysters and other shellfish.Read More
