Polperro Harbour Trustees
The 15 Trustees are unpaid volunteers. Every year, five resident Polperro ratepayers are elected at an annual meeting to serve for three years. The Trustees themselves elect a Chairman, Vice-Chairman, Treasurer and Harbourmaster.
Income from harbour dues, such as fish landing and mooring charges, as well as wayleave and receipts from the Heritage Museum, is used to meet the cost of maintaining the quays and piers and other overheads.

Design and Access Statement
Replacement Storm/Tidal Gate Polperro Harbour
Polperro Harbour is administered by the Harbour Trustees,
established by an Act of Parliament in 1894 “for the improvement, maintenance
and regulation of the harbour”.
After nearly 30 years of operation, the gate is showing
signs of distress and the Trustees are not able to afford the sums required
for significant repairs.
The new gate is designed to give tidal flood protection
to the harbour area and the surrounding properties protecting49residential
and 28 commercial properties, including listed buildings, against a
1 in 100 year tidal flooding event during the anticipated lifespan of
the gate of 50 years.
Our webpage plans
We hope that this webpage will, eventually, give a history of the Polperro Harbour Trustees as well as practical information of use to visiting yachtsmen, mariners and other users of the harbour facilities. Keep visiting!
