This lecture by a senior Coastguard, Geoff Matthews, will explain the changes and provide for a Q& A session
about their potential consequences for marine safety in the Solent. The most obvious change will be the opening of the new National Marine Operations Cente at Segensworth, near Fareham, and the closure of Lee on Solent Coastguard later this year. The Hill Head shore rescue station will be relocated to the Daedalus site near Gosport, which will also house a new national Coastguard training centre. There will also be changes to the national helicopter coverage.
Come and hear for yourself about these changes, and ,crucially, how the transition will be managed
