Statutory Harbour Authority

Yarmouth Harbour Commissioners (YHC) is a Statutory Harbour Authority (SHA) and our jurisdiction extends from the Causeway at Freshwater to the seaward limits as described in the 2011 Harbour Revision Order.

YHC is obliged to administer the harbour in accordance with the 1931 Act and the principles of governance promoted in Ports Good Governance Guidance (DfT March 2018).

The 1931 Act incorporates certain sections of the 1847 Harbours, Docks and Piers Clauses Act that give the Chief Executive/Harbour Master statutory powers concerning the management of the harbour. Additionally, the 1931 Act empowers the Commissioners to fix rates at the level required to meet their statutory obligations.

The Harbour Revision Order (HRO) of 30 June 2011 replaced the previous Byelaws creating powers of General Direction.
