Port of Dover Leisure zone management strategy

The Port of Dover has two distinct areas for waterborne recreational activity:

  • The Western Docks Marina
  • The Outer Harbour Recreational Area (which encompasses the seafront and associated sections of beach)

The Government’s Port Marine Safety Code accompanying Guide to Good Practice on Port Marine Operations makes specific reference to recreational activities within harbours. The Port of Dover has recognised and taken a proactive approach to the risk management of such leisure activities within its jurisdiction by ensuring that an appropriate leisure zone management strategy exists for each area.
