The river and environment

Some areas of the river are highly regarded for their importance to nature conservation

The River Hamble Harbour Authority ensures that any activities we undertake, or anything we permit others to do, will not harm this valuable environment.

We are responsible for:

  • the daily routine of monitoring the┬áharbour environment
  • advising the Harbour Board on environmental matters
  • working with other organisations and authorities in managing the harbour environment
