The group are seeking a Chair and request applications or nominations for this position. The person should be comfortable to run proceedings and have a neutral status to ensure the meetings remain unbiased.

This is a voluntary role, without renumeration. The group meet formally twice a year with additional meetings as necessary. The group are provided with administrative support by Fowey Harbour Commissioners.
