Harbour Directions Powers - How to apply for designation

The Marine Navigation Act 2013 modified the Harbours Act 1964 by adding a new section 40A, which provides Scottish Ministers with the power to designate by order a harbour authority as one having the power to make harbour directions (as defined by that section).

This informal guidance advises harbour authorities in Scotland on the process for applying for such designation. The guidance has no force in law but is aimed at providing assistance to harbour authorities as to the requirements of Scottish Ministers before they include an authority in a designation order.
