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.”

The application is in draft form and will be of interest to all users of Portland Harbour Authority’s jurisdiction both inside and outside the breakwaters. The session will take place at the Chesil Beach Centre on Portland Beach Road, Portland DT4 9XE on Tuesday 18th September. Please come and talk to us between the hours of 1500 and 1900 to find out more.  We are inviting comments and feedback prior to submitting the formal application to government and would like to receive these by Tuesday 2nd October 2018.  If you are unable to attend and would like to discuss this further please email s.wilson@portland-port.co.uk with your details so we can get in touch.

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

We will post updates to our the following page on our website:  http://www.portland-port.co.uk/jobs+and+consultations​
