Shoreham Port were delighted to host a presentation and boat tour this week for members of the Sussex Chamber of Commerce for their Construction Forum. Over 40 members of the Chamber enjoyed a presentation by Tim Hague, Director of Property & Development at the Port before embarking on a windy boat tour along the canal with the Port’s Director of Engineering, Tony Parker.

Tim discussed developments that have recently taken place at the Port such as the recent purchase of No.1 Basin Road South and Maritime House, which have further expanded the Port’s property portfolio. Tim then went onto discuss up and coming development projects in the area such as the development of Kingston Wharf and proposed plans for Lady Bee Marina.

Members of the group thoroughly enjoyed the boat tour, taking in the sights and sounds of the Port, and catching all of the action from the terminals as they cruised down the canal. Tony provided live commentary along the way, informing visitors about the day to day running of the Port and all the businesses that operate on the site 

Tim commented “We were delighted to be asked to host this event. It was a great opportunity to meet the members of the Chamber and to update them on activity across our property estate. Between my update on growth of the let estate and Tony’s boat tour covering engineering and infrastructure, we hope we provided a comprehensive insight to the attendees. 

Ana Christie, Sussex Chamber of Commerce Chief Executive commented “It was a fantastic event for Sussex Chamber members involved in the construction industry to understand the extent of the development at Shoreham Port. The extensive commercial property portfolio with over 130 units for start-up companies and larger organisations is amazing as businesses struggle to find suitable space in Sussex.

The boat trip allowed members to see the extent of the Port’s imports and exports, as well as the Port’s contribution to green energy through the use of solar panels and stopping beach erosion by conserving the coastline. Thank you to everyone at Shoreham Port.”
