New Director of Operations: Natalie Britton

WALES’ biggest port, The Port of Milford Haven, has appointed a new head of operations for Pembroke and Milford Docks, tasked among other roles, with bringing new business into the Port.

Natalie Britton is the new Director of Operations and Commercial at Pembroke and Milford Docks, and will take on responsibility for the running of key areas including Wales’ biggest fishing port – Milford Fish Docks, and Milford Marina.

She will also be heading to South Wales’ largest ferry terminal operation and developing plans for increased cargo throughput at Pembroke Port.

“Natalie is a great asset to our team,” said Chief Executive Alec Don. “She has a great deal of local port knowledge having worked both for one of our past customers, Murco, and more recently at Svitzer, one of our key partners delivering port towage services.

“Hers is a critical role that really can help to deliver the Port’s strategic goals, shaping the future of the port. The Port of Milford Haven is one of the UK’s biggest ports – it handles more seaborne trade in oil and gas than any other.

“However, exciting opportunities exist within the areas of Pembroke Port, Milford Fish Docks and Milford Marina which, and with the right support, could create over 1,500 additional jobs across both sites. High on the list of priorities will be working with partners to improve infrastructure links to Wales’ biggest port.

“Natalie’s role includes attracting new opportunities, such as renewable energy manufacture and increased cargo throughput, to Pembroke Port, and working with our sales and marketing team to grow the marina and support the regeneration of the fishing industry in Milford Docks.”

Natalie, who lives in Llangwm, said: “This is a great challenge at a very exciting time for the Port. I have spent most of the last decade working by the Haven and know how great a role global economics plays in defining this port’s future and the economic prosperity of the local area.

“Our challenge is to adapt and evolve, and I look forward to leading that challenge head on, and getting stuck in to the exciting projects we have planned for the docks in both Milford Haven and Pembroke Port. We are looking to grow the business and work collaboratively with local businesses.”

Natalie is also a keen leisure user of the waterways and looks forward to working with the team to develop the commercial side of the Haven in her new role.

The development comprises:

  • 12 one bed flats in three blocks (four flats are identified for assisted living, with communal facilities)
  • seven two-storey two bedroom houses
  • five two-storey three bedroom houses
  • two two-storey four bedroom houses
  • one two-storey five bedroom house
  • four two -bedroom bungalows
  • two bungalows with three or more bedrooms.

The estate also includes parking, open space and associated works.

The Council’s Cabinet Member for Housing, Michelle Bateman, said it was a red-letter day for the Authority.
“The house-building scheme fulfils a pledge made by the Authority’s Cabinet when it took over the administration of the Council in 2017” she explained.
“I am proud and delighted to say that we are now honouring that pledge.”

Councillor Bateman added that other council house-building schemes were lined up for Tudor Place in Tiers Cross and Charles Street, Milford Haven.
The Houses are being built by WRW Construction Limited. As a result of the Covid-19 interruption there has been a slight delay and construction work is now due to finish in December 2021
