The Harbours Act of 1996 has changed our relationship with the national government. The Galway Harbour Company is a stand-alone economic entity with a mandate to sustain and grow the business of the Port of Galway. Our working relationship with the Department of Transport is on an open and engaging basis.
In all that we do Galway Harbour Company operates an open and transparent policy in terms of engaging with our main shareholder (Dept. of Transport), our customers and our partners. To this end we have so far consulted with over 100 representative bodies including Galway City & County Councils, local & national politicians, resident’s organisations, fishing organisations, sailing organisations and business organisations, in order to elicit feedback on our proposed redevelopment. We welcome feedback, suggestions and input from any and all quarters to ensure that the final proposed development is a success. So much so, that even with the proposed Port expansion design being complete, we are always open to hear new ideas and ways to do things smarter. Pop us a line, give us a call or complete the on-line feedback section on this web site. Communication is king and we will never tire of hearing opinions and views. Sometimes you have to look back to go forward and we have done this by going back of initial designs of how the expanded Port would look and be constructed. We continue to look forward to this exciting and important time in the history of the next phase of Galway being a Maritime Port City. The expanded Port will change Galway for the better and serve the city and region for decades to come.
