In November 2022, MHT received a commissioned report (high level feasibility study) in respect of Mevagissey Harbour by Kovia Consulting. This significant report looks at the options to defend the harbour from the sea and the effects of climate change. The report is a starting point that sets out the evidence and a case for action. The report will be discussed with Cornwall Council and The Environment Agency.
By reducing the amount of carbon that is emitted, it is hoped that we can slow the warming up of the planet and the associated issues of climate change. The UK government has set a legally binding target for the UK to achieve “net zero” greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
The potential impact of climate change on the harbour has been considered by a sub-committee of MHT with the assistance of external experts Marine-i and Kovia Consulting. Full details of the work done, reports produced and MHT’s policy on climate change are set out in the CLIMATE CHANGE section of our website. View our Climate Page below.
