Board Meetings

The Dart Harbour Board holds collective responsibility for the long term success of the Authority.

Board vacancies are advertised on our website and are open to all suitably qualified applicants.  These are voluntary positions ( Board members are not remunerated)

Regular Board Meetings

The normal board business of the Dart Harbour takes place each month between January and November, with no meeting in the busy month of August.  Two of these meetings will be held in village locations with a border along the river Dart (eg Totnes, Stoke Gabriel, Dittisham or Kingswear).

The board also holds two strategy workshops which are closed to members of the public, so that specific subjects can be discussed in depth before ratification at a subsequent Board meeting that is open.  The majority of meetings are held in the Clifton Room at The Guildhall, Victoria Road, Dartmouth.  Dates and times of meetings are shown in the table below.

During the Coronavirus pandemic, Dart Harbour Board Meetings have taken place online via Zoom.  There are no plans to hold physical board meetings at this stage and the Annual Meeting has been cancelled.

Members of the Public Welcome

Dart Harbour is committed to openness and transparency, therefore, members of the public are invited to join Dart Harbour Board meetings up until any confidential or sensitive business is tabled,  where members of the public will be asked to leave.

If you wish to attend a board meeting please email us at least 24-hrs before the meeting and inform us of any specific question you may have so we may fully research our response. Please email to [email protected]

Full board minutes are published in the ratified minutes which can be viewed from the link on this page.

Dart Harbour also holds an annual open meeting for all its stakeholders,  details of which can be found here
