Consultation is now taking place on important revisions to the governance and management of Littlehampton Harbour.
This process will involve a 28 day pre-application consultation phase starting on Monday 5th August and closing at 5pm on Sunday 1st September. As part of this, a stakeholder drop in day will be held at Arun Civic Centre on Tuesday 13th August 2019 between the hours of 1000 and 1600.
Following consideration of pre-application consultation comments, and Board approval at its next meeting on 2nd September incorporating any appropriate amendments to the proposed HRO, it is the Board’s intention to submit the application for the proposed HRO to the Marine Management Organisation in advance of the 1 October 2019 fee increases (probably in the middle of September to ensure that the HRO application is validated and the application fee paid ahead of the 1 October 2019).
As part of the formal application process, the Marine Management Organisation will run a 42 day public consultation. The consultation will be advertised in a local newspaper and the London Gazette. As such there will be a further opportunity to provide comments on the proposed HRO direction to the Marine Management Organisation once the application is made.
