Transport Strategy, Isles of Scilly, UK

We were appointed by the Council for the Isles of Scilly, funded by the Countryside Agency, to develop a strategy for transport to / between and on the Isles covering air, sea and land transportation.

The study included a review of ferry services between the isles and the mainland, with an assessment of the options for improving seakeeping, speed, and cargo handling. It also considered related port infrastructure requirements at the Ports of Penzance and St Mary’s.

On the air transport side, it considered matched developments of airports/ heliports and deployment of aircraft with enhanced capability.

A Route Partnership Group is subsequently developing proposals for improvements to the Isles of Scilly sea link. The group is made up of the County Council, Penwith District Council, Isles of Scilly Council, Government Office for the South West, Duchy of Cornwall, and the Isles of Scilly Steamship Company, the current operator of the sea link.
