HARBOURS ACT 1964 (AS AMENDED)
THE PROPOSED CLYDEPORT OPERATIONS LIMITED (GREENOCK OCEAN TERMINAL CRUISE BERTH) HARBOUR REVISION ORDER 2018
NOTICE OF APPLICATION FOR A HARBOUR REVISION ORDER
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN THAT Clydeport Operations Limited ("the Company"), as the statutory harbour authority for the Port of Greenock ("the Port"), has applied to the Scottish Ministers for a harbour revision order ("the Order") under section 14 of the Harbours Act 1964 ("the 1964 Act").
Clydeport Operations Limited ("the Company"), as the statutory harbour authority for the Port of Greenock ("the Port"), has applied to the Scottish Ministers for a harbour revision order ("the Order") under section 14 of the Harbours Act 1964 ("the 1964 Act").
The Order would authorise the construction and maintenance of a new dedicated cruise ship berth and associated facilities at the Port within the limits of deviation shown on the deposited plans and sections. The works proposed consist of dredging in front of the existing quay wall, together with the construction of mono piles, a floating pontoon, access structures and associated ancillary works.
The Order creates an offence of, without lawful authority, intentionally
obstructing or interfering with the carrying out of the works, with a fine on summary
conviction not exceeding level 3 on the standard scale. Provision is made?
(a) against danger to navigation and abatement of works abandoned or decayed; and
(b) for the lighting of the works permanently and during construction.
A defence of due diligence is available to the Company in respect of offences committed under the Order.
No land is proposed for compulsory acquisition and there are no proposals to extinguish or divert any public right of way over a footpath or bridleway.
The Scottish Ministers have advised by letter dated 11 May 2018 that they have decided in accordance with paragraph 4 of Part 1 of Schedule 3 to the 1964 Act that the application relates to a project which falls within Annex II to Council Directive 2011/92/EU on the assessment of the effects of certain public and private projects on the environment ("the Directive") as the
application relates to the construction of a port installation. The Scottish Ministers have
concluded that it is not a relevant project in terms of Schedule 3 to the 1964 Act because it would be unlikely to have significant effects on the environment by virtue of its size and location. Accordingly, no environmental statement is required.
Paragraph 16 of Schedule 3 to the 1964 Act (which relates to information on a project which is likely to have significant effects on the environment in any other European Economic Area Member State) does not apply to the application.
A copy of the draft Order, the deposited plans, sections and elevations of the proposed works which accompanied the application and the letter dated 11 May 2018 from the Scottish Ministers referred to above, may be inspected, free of charge, until the expiry of the forty-two day period referred to below at the following locations and times?
