Powers of Direction
We have been pleased to support the Chichester Harbour Conservancy’s application for “Powers of Direction” the modern alternative to Byelaws. Once established like Byelaws they carry the force of law. They were introduced as part of the Marine Navigation Act 2013. The Chichester Harbour Conservancy as Harbour Authority can use them to regulate vessels within the harbour.
Terror no longer threatened
A Memorandum of Understanding is being signed between the Conservancy and Friends of Chichester Harbour to secure the future of Terror for at least a further 3 years as a sailing boat for hire or charter.
