The membership of the Crouch Harbour Authority has been changed by Crouch Harbour Authority (Constitution) Harbour Revision Order 2007 which represents government policy on the constitution of Trust Port Authorities.
The membership of the Authority is being reduced to 10 members. Whereas under Crouch Harbour Act 1974 the members of the Authority were appointed by County and District Councils and other named organisations, following the Revision Order members are appointed by an Appointments Panel of existing members lead by the Chairman of the Authority and hold office in their own right.
Members of Crouch Harbour Authority for 2015 are:
- Chairman: Edwin Buckley
- Vice Chairman: Cllr. John Archer
- John James
- Simon Hollington
- Robert Croshaw
- Dean Border
- Danyal Adams
- Richard Lingard
- Cllr. Colin Seagers
Member vacancies are advertised in the local press. The appointments process is intended to ensure that the board of members contains a wide range of experience and abilities relevant to the management of a harbour, as set out in the Revision Order.
