Department For Transport
Following a review, Harwich Haven Authority (HHA), in its role as a competent harbour authority, has applied to the Department for Transport to extend its existing area of voluntary pilotage to include the western most areas of:
- Hamford Water
- Oakley Creek
in the area known as the Walton Backwaters.
This consultation seeks your comments on the HHAs proposal and a draft of the pilotage extension order to assist the Secretary of State in making a final decision on this application.
