Planning permission is being sought for the redevelopment of Clark’s Lodges and Marina at Otterham Creek on Woodgers Wharf, a site currently used as a scaffolder’s yard. The “working marina” would accommodate 39 houseboats with a boat fabricating building and 10 static holiday lodges plus gym, café and restaurant. Read more at Upchurch Matters…

Message from Queenborough Harbour Team: Unfortunately there will be NO trot boat running this weekend (11+12 August) due to mechanical issues. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and are trying everything in our power to rectify this.

Queenborough Harbour Trust is delighted to introduce to you our new Harbour Manager, Emma Crompton. Emma comes to us with over ten years’ experience of the marine industry, working in various sectors and is also a crew member within the RNLI. Emma is very excited about taking this position and looks forward to meeting our mooring holders and visitors and contribute to the continued development of Queenborough Harbour.
Yesterday afternoon high winds and a very high tide combined to cause considerable damage to the walkway. One of the supporting floats close to the security gate broke free causing a section of the walkway to collapse. Temporary repairs have been carried out, but access is very dangerous.
If you really must use the walkway, this is only possible at low water, with the floats aground. Please proceed with extreme caution 1 person at a time. Many planks are loose, some are missing and many others are a significant trip hazard. Access at high water or anytime when the floats are lifted with the tide is not possible.
We apologise for the inconvenience and we are doing everything possible to have the walkway back in use as soon as we can.
UPDATE 30 Jan 2018: Emma, the new Harbour Manager, has advised us yesterday that the walkway has been open again for some time.
