Warrenpoint Harbour Authority (WHA) has hosted the inaugural meeting of its Community Forum which has been established to interact with the community and build on the contribution that the Port makes to local area.

Held at the Whistledown Hotel, the new Forum, which provisionally elected James Mc Kevitt as its first Chair, is made up of seventeen members who all have a strong footprint in Warrenpoint and are well placed to provide valuable insights and recommendations on the Port’s activities and how it can positively impact the local community.

Central to the Forum’s focus will be community support, the environment and sustainability, education and skills development, and WHA’s jobs and economic contribution to the Warrenpoint area and beyond.

Chair of the Warrenpoint Harbour Authority Dr Gerard O’Hare welcomed the formation of the Forum and looked forward to its contribution in the months ahead.

Dr O’Hare said, “The Forum reflects our commitment to work more closely with the Warrenpoint community and create a channel through which local residents, businesses and a broad range of community stakeholders can engage with us and support us in further building our contribution to society.

“We appreciate the time and commitment that members are making to participate in the Forum and we very much welcome their input and contribution as we embark on this journey.”

A second meeting of the Warrenpoint Harbour Authority Community Forum is planned in the next few weeks.
