On 3 August 2018, the Broads Authority made a formal application to the Marine Management Organisation (MMO) under section 14 of the Harbours Act 1964 for a Harbour Revision Order (HRO).
The proposed order is consequent upon the proposed Port of Lowestoft (Transfer of Mutford Lock) Harbour Revision Order 2018, which is applied for at the same time as this Order and would provide for the transfer of Mutford Lock and adjoining land held with Mutford Lock from Associated British Ports to the Broads Authority.
This Order would provide for Mutford Lock to become part of the navigation area within the jurisdiction of the Broads Authority and therefore for the Broads Authority to become the harbour authority for Mutford Lock.
The application is undergoing a 42 day public consultation, starting on 3 August 2018. The deadline for submitting comments is 14 September 2018. For further information on the consultation process, please review the advertisement notice.
