Instruments of interest

Fowey Harbour Revision Order 2021 (SI 2021/130)

Newport (Isle of Wight) Harbour Revision Order 2021 (SI 2021/139)

21.These two instruments modernise and clarify the statutory powers for the harbour authority in each port. As part of this process they are required to provide an illustrative map of the harbour area on their respective websites within 30 days of the Order coming into force. We suggested to the Marine Management Organisation (MMO) that this reduces the transparency of the legislation as the maps would not necessarily be available during the scrutiny period for the statutory instrument. We welcome the MMO’s response, it has asked each of the ports instead to place the map on their website on the day that their Order comes into effect. The MMO has also undertaken to ensure that these illustrative maps are provided at an earlier stage in future Harbour Revision Orders.
