Whitby’s controversial Harbour Board is set to be scrapped following a borough council investigation into the group.

The Harbour Board has been plagued by a number of long-running problems since the Pilot Scheme began, three years ago, and as such it has not been embraced by Whitby residents.

Therefore the Scrutiny Task Group assigned, led by Councillor Jane Mortimer, has recommended that the scheme be concluded and replaced by an ‘Expert Advisory Group’.

Coun Mortimer said: “The review of Whitby Harbour Board has been a very challenging task and no stone has been left unturned in reaching our final conclusions.”
