NEW BYELAWS FOR PORTLAND PORT

As from the 16th August there will be new byelaws coming in to effect for Portland Port and its estate, which will affect all users of the port estate.

The byelaws have been sought by Portland Port to address issues that were not previously covered by other laws, for example trespass on the port estate. 

Previously trespassers and other transgressions that took place within the port estate, could only be dealt with under civil law, the new byelaws will mean that trespassers and offenders can be taken before the Magistrates and if found guilty could be liable to pay a fine.

The byelaws can be found on Portland Port’s website (http://www.portland-port.co.uk/portland+port+police)

If anyone has any queries about the new byelaws, Portland Port will be happy to answer any questions, please email police@portlandportpolice.uk.

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

Portland Harbour Authority invite interested parties to a drop-in session 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.”
