Newport Harbour General Directions 2022

To assist in the management of Newport Harbour in accordance with the Port Marine Safety Code, the Isle of Wight Council (as statutory harbour authority) has been granted the power to give General Directions under the Newport (Isle of Wight) Harbour Revision Order 2021.

In accordance with the guidance within the Port Marine Safety Code, we conducted a review of our current powers to manage activities within Newport Harbour and this concluded that a comprehensive set of General Directions should be adopted.

Consultation was undertaken on the proposed introduction of new General Directions in accordance with article 5 of the Newport (Isle of Wight) Harbour Revision Order 2021. The new General Directions will be implemented from Saturday 7 May 2022.

Printed copies of the General Directions are available from: Newport Harbour Office, Quay House, Town Quay, Newport, Isle of Wight, PO30 2EF
