HARBOURS ACT 1964 (AS AMENDED)
THE CLYDEPORT (COP 26 etc.) HARBOUR REVISION ORDER 2021
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN THAT the Clydeport (COP 26 etc.) Harbour Revision Order 2021 was made by the Scottish Ministers on 12th October 2021 and came into force on 13th October 2021.
(a) permanently extend the port limits to expressly include the docks and works;
(b) confer updated general functions on the applicant.
(c) Enable the applicant to issue general directions, and the applicant's harbour master to issue special directions, to vessels
(d) Amend the Clydeport Authority Order 1965, to amongst other things, update certain definitions.
(e) Temporarily extend the limits of the Port to between 27th October 2021 to 15 November 2021 (the COP 26 period) to include a temporary additional areas near the COP 26 event campus so that during that period the applicant will be the harbour authority for that area and will be able to exercise its powers and functions (except the power to dredge) there.
The Scottish Ministers support the applicant's case for the need for powers of general direction to enable compliance with the Port Marine Safety Code, and considered that the consultation requirements provide sufficient safeguards. They also agree that the powers sought to expand the port limits are reasonable, as are the powers to appropriate or set apart part of the port. They also determine that none of these powers unreasonably limits the public right of navigation.
