Scarborough Council is set to form a task group to provide a strategic plan for Scarborough Harbour.  No doubt under the auspicious eye of the the Portfolio holder Mike Cockerill and the Overview & Scrutiny  Board Chair Steve Siddons.  Both of whom freely admit that depsite headlining the recently dissolved  Ports  Development group that they failed.  No doubt they will seem fit to oversee & head up the proposed Harbours Task Group.   With recent questions asked of the future of Scarborough Harbour it seems fitting to look at some of the past associations, fossil style.
