General Directions are rules that apply to all harbour users, including those on the water within Yarmouth Harbour Commissioners’ jurisdiction and/or on any of the Commissioners’ property.
The 2011 Yarmouth (Isle of Wight) Harbour Revision Order granted powers of General Direction and Special Direction to Yarmouth Harbour Commissioners.
The Yarmouth (Isle of Wight) General Directions came into effect on 1 March 2012. These are the rules and regulations for the day-to-day running of the harbour and supersede the Yarmouth Harbour 1973 Byelaws.
The General Directions and Harbour Revision Order can be downloaded via the links below, or paper copies are available for collection at Yarmouth Harbour Office Reception.
