All vessels that are afloat within the Port and Haven District

must pay Conservancy Dues.

The revenue derived from these ‘Dues’ is used by the Haven to meet the cost of the management of the harbour including, but not restricted to:

  Fees for the coming year 2018 / 2019 are set at £85.00   The Clerk to the Commissioners will be writing to all boat owners with an invoice for payment by the end of April 2019.  Late payers will incur an additional reminder administration fee of £30.00.

  Upon receipt of payment a Conservancy sticker will be sent for affixing to the boat in a conspicuos position.  It denotes payment made and is your receipt.  It is not transferable to another boat.

Non payers risk seizure of the vessel and /or recovery of the debt through the courts.

Stickers MUST be displayed and all boats must have a name clearly displayed.  

Failure to display a sticker is telling others - and the

Harbour Master - that you have not paid!
