HARBOURS ACT 1964 (AS AMENDED)
PROPOSED WEYMOUTH HARBOUR REVISION ORDER 201 
NOTICE OF APPLICATION FOR A HARBOUR REVISION ORDER
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that Weymouth and Portland Borough Council ("the applicant") has applied to the Marine Management Organisation ("MMO") for a harbour revision order under section 14 of the Harbours Act 1964.
The proposed order would modernise and consolidate the statutory harbour powers applying in relation to Weymouth Harbour. The Order provides for: clarity on the limits of the harbour; the establishment of an advisory body consisting of Harbour stakeholders with which the Council are required to consult on material matters; modernised powers of management and control of the Harbour to vest in the Council including provisions relating general and special powers of direction, the making of byelaws, navigational safety, conservation, dredging, moorings, bunkering, levying of charges and use of harbour revenue; powers to vest in the Council which include the power to borrow, to establish a reserve fund, to develop or dispose of land, to grant tenancies and to incorporate companies limited by shares or guarantee. To facilitate that above, the Order revokes the Acts and Orders set out in Schedule 1 to the Order and amends the Acts and Orders set out in article 46.
The proposed order would not authorise the construction or alteration of a project or confer development consent. Accordingly, Council Directive 85/337/EEC on the assessment of the effects of certain public and private projects on the environment (as amended) which is codified by Council Directive 2011/92/EU (as amended by Directive 2014/52/EU) does not apply to the proposals and no environmental statement has been supplied.
A copy of the draft order and accompanying documents is deposited at the offices of the applicant at: Weymouth and Portland Borough Council, Commercial Road, Weymouth, Dorset, DT4 8NG. These may be inspected at all reasonable hours until the expiry of the forty-two day period referred to below.
The draft order and accompanying documents are also available for inspection at the offices of the MMO in Newcastle by appointment at the email address below or may be viewed on the MMO's website at: https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/harbour-orders-public-register
Any person desiring to make an objection or representation concerning the application should write to the Marine Licensing Team, Marine Management Organisation, Lancaster House, Hampshire Court, Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE4 7YH or email to firstname.lastname@example.org. An objection or representation should:
i. be received before the expiry of a period of 42 days starting with the date at the foot of this notice;
