Strategic Business Plan for Scarborough Harbour

A draft strategic business plan for Scarborough Harbour has been developed which identifies and examines the external, internal and operating environment of the harbour.

The business plan identifies the harbours strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats and proposes a number of key actions for ensuring the ongoing sustainability of the harbour.

Crucially, the business plan identifies the fact that the harbour is very much a mixed use facility, valued and used by a wide range of groups. The harbour is intrinsic to the wellbeing of the economy and community as a whole and is a key economic driver within town. Importantly the harbour has historically always changed and adapted to new opportunities and must continue to do so if it is to remain sustainable and successful. Therefore a number of actions for achieving this sustainability are identified within the plan.
