Port Master PlanCouncillor Mike Hancock

Foreword by Councillor Mike Hancock CBE MP

Executive Member with responsibility for Portsmouth International Port

“…the Master Plan is an overview of the Port’s strategy it has been built on the sound basis of an independent view of the market and a study of the
Port’s economic impact.”

 

Every successful business plans for the future, looking at how it can improve its efficiency and profitability but also planning for the necessary resources to be available for growth. Portsmouth International Port is no different and has for many years developed its business planning to take the Port into the future.

 

The Port Master Plan is a new part of that process, being a public document for discussion with all of the Port’s many stakeholders. It follows the guidelines set by the Department of Transport but also adds other items that will become more important as the Port develops.

 

Although the Regional Development Agencies have now gone and their places filled by different organisations it is also important that all of those that may be required to commit resources that will enable the Port to develop understand the path that the Port is following.


Even though the Master Plan is an overview of the Port’s strategy it has been built on the sound basis of an independent view of the market and a study of the Port’s economic impact. However, it can only reflect what is currently known and therefore, like most forecasts, is likely to quickly become outdated and wrong. To counteract this, the Master Plan will be a 'living’ document with regular updates to reflect the changes in the Port. This will be achieved by holding the Plan as part of the Port’s website rather than as a paper based document.

 

I hope that everyone who looks at the Master Plan will find it interesting and will provide us with their comments.
