Case 202400449

 

Dear John Sandbank,

 

Thank you for your Environmental Information Regulations Request
202400449  dated 24/04/2024 requesting information about infrastructure
works required in harbours and specifically how much of the reported £27m
cost is in relation to Whitby Harbour.

 

Further to your email, please find the Council’s response below.

 

Your Request:

Dear North Yorkshire Council,

in the Transition (LGR) Overview and Scrutiny Committee on Monday, 11th
March, 2024 10.00 am there was a report for item 7 about Harbours. In the
report it was stated " Extensive project programmes and costings have been
developed for each area in turn and an investment of £27m is required to
resolve all of the issues.".

Can you please define how much of the £27m would be applicable to Whitby
harbour, and for that amount please provide that a breakdown of areas of
spend with amounts within Whitby harbour?

 

North Yorkshire Council’s Response:

I am writing in relation to the infrastructure works required in our
harbours and specifically how much of the reported £27m cost is in
relation to Whitby Harbour.

 

I can confirm that the £27m figure is for major schemes only and does not
include projects classed as coastal defence which are considered and
funded separately.  Of the £27m, £14,076,000 is in relation to Whitby
Harbour and this is broken down as follows:

• Eskside Wharf Sheet Piling Replacement - £3.451m
• Repairs to West Pier Lighthouse - £3.197m
• Fish Quay Pile Replacement - £3.752m
• Endeavour Wharf Protection Measures - £3.676m

 

Please find attached the Council’s information governance appeals
procedure for your information. Please remember to quote the reference
number above in any future communications.

 

Kind regards
