Harbour Revision Order
On 16th October 2019, Dart Harbour and Navigation 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 modernises and consolidates the statutory harbour powers applying in relation to Dart Harbour.
The Order provides for:
- Modernised powers of management and control of the harbour to vest in the Commissioners including provisions relating to general and special powers of direction and notices.
- Amendments to sections 2, 3, and 48 of the Dart Harbour and Navigation Authority Act 1975.
- Repealing the Dartmouth Harbour Improvement Act 1882 in so far as it still in force.
The proposed order would not authorise the construction or alteration of a project or confer development consent. Accordingly, Council Directive 85/337/EEC on the assessment of the effects of certain public and private projects on the environment (as amended) which is codified by Council Directive 2011/92/EU (as amended by Directive 2014/52/EU) does not apply to the proposals and no environmental statement has been supplied.
The period of public consultation lasts for 42 days following the publication of the first notice. The notice will therefore run from 18 September 2020 until 30 October 2020.
For further information on the consultation process, please review the advertisement notice. If you would like to make a representation please do so in writing via the email@example.com inbox. Representations should quote reference HRO/2019/00009.
