Tor Bay Harbour Authority operationally manages the three enclosed harbours of Brixham, Torquay and Paignton.
The Authority is an individual section of Torbay Council, responsible for providing a comprehensive, efficient and effective service within the statutory harbour of Tor Bay.
The Harbour Committee is responsible for managing the finances of Tor Bay Harbour including the setting of harbour charges and ensuring that the reserve funds are kept at an appropriate level. Members also approve and monitor the Harbour's business plan and address any issues relating to performance. It is made up of 7 voting members of the Council and 6 external non-voting advisors.
The Committee are also designated as the 'Duty Holder' for the Port Marine Safety Code and therefore accountable for Tor Bay Harbours compliance to the code.
The Committee meets quarterly throughout the year and works closely with the Tor Bay Harbour Masters and appointed officers, to manage and maintain the service to the highest possible standard.
