Poole Harbour is one of the outstanding natural features of Southern England. The Poole Harbour Commissioners have a duty to maintain, regulate and improve the Harbour sustainably so that it can be passed on to future generations. The Port of Poole, operated by the Commissioners, remains a central feature of the Harbour's day to day activity as a successful medium sized port.
The Commissioners continue to look at ways to develop and improve the facilities and services they provide for ferries, fast ferries, cargo vessels, cruise ships, private yachts and other harbour users in an environmentally sustainable way.
The Environmental Review for the current year is included in the Commissioners' Annual Accounts, which can be found in the Reports and Publications section under General Port Information reports and publications page
