Consultations

2nd Informal Consultation by Portland Harbour Authority on draft application for a Fisheries (Several) Order

Portland Harbour Authority invite interested parties to view the final draft application prior to submission to Defra in late March 2019.

An informal consultation commenced in September 2018 and documents were online to view until 14th March 2019. A drop-in session was also held in September 2018 to enable interested parties to find out more about our plans to apply to Defra for a fisheries order legally known as a Several Order.

Several Orders are granted for setting up or improving private shellfisheries and in this case will relate to crustaceans and molluscs. In securing the Order the harbour authority’s policy is one of “being supportive of improving the cultivation/ management of the fishery but in doing so it must be mindful of the activities of the harbour’s existing users and the environment.”

The draft application has now been updated to take account of the feedback received and is available for final comment prior to formal submission. It will potentially be of interest to all users of Portland Harbour Authority’s jurisdiction both inside and outside the breakwaters.

If you have any final comments or would like to discuss this further please  email s.wilson@portland-port.co.uk with your details so we can get in touch or call 01305 824044

A copy of the draft application documentation is available to download below.
