Exe Estuary Nagivation Authority Advice, UK

Exe Estuary Nagivation Authority Advice, UK

Exeter City Council (ECC) is the municipal harbour authority for the Exe Estuary and the Exeter Ship Canal. In 1989 all shipping at Exmouth Docks ceased overnight and the Town Dues were lost.  The cost of managing navigation in the Estuary therefore fell on the Council Tax payers in Exeter, although 90% of the estuary is outside the city boundary.

ECC resolved to establish a new harbour authority (the Exe Estuary Navigation Authority (EENA)) as a Trust Port in line with the Government’s Guide to Good Governance of 2000, and has submitted an HRO (a legal application to the UK’s Department for Transport (DfT)) to do this. ECC required specialist assistance to support its application, and therefore appointed Fisher Associates to review the proposed business plan for EENA, and to make recommendations on progressing the HRO following consultation with MCA and DfT.
