PLEASE NOTE THAT AN APPLICATION DOES NOT MEAN AUTOMATIC ACCEPTANCE AS THE DEMAND FOR BERTHS IS LIKELY TO BE OVERSUBSCRIBED. You will be informed if your application has been successful as soon as possible.
Our harbour is typically full over the summer season; however it is important that you apply should you wish a space, particularly on the pontoon and regardless of having berthed in the harbour in the previous season. We do give priority to those that berthed in the previous year and should they not wish to take a berth we would seek to fill the capacity from our waiting list. With respect to the waiting list we do try and accommodate based on the length of time on the waiting list, but due to practical issues around capacity and configuration on the pontoon, it isn’t always possible to do so.
WEST PIER - GATE POLICY
The Trustees agreed that a gate shall be erected and used to control a number of potentially serious health and safety issues for the wellbeing of all harbour users. The proposal was also presented and discussed with CDCC late in 2022. This note reflects how the Trust intends to operate access to the wider pier areas affected by the installation of a gate on the bridge.
It is important that the harbour continues to manage and balance those safety risks posed to harbour users, and access granted to the community as a whole, and appropriate visitors to Cromarty. Appropriate is deemed to mean the number and purpose of visitors using the harbour. The decision to close (and open) the gate is at the discretion of the harbourmaster (or a designated representative), having assessed the developing situation on site and it would also be his decision when it is deemed safe to reopen it. The harbourmaster will maintain a detailed log of closures that will be used to monitor gate access and determine future policy. The expectation is that gate will only be closed in exceptional circumstances where the harbourmaster considers there is a serious risk to health or safety such as concerns relating to:
- adverse weather conditions;
- overcrowding in the outer area (including The Mole); and
- multiple fishing lines representing a risk to the individuals themselves and to other harbour users.
There is no particular time or date expectation of when access could be restricted. Where the harbourmaster is unavailable the decision will be delegated to Ryan MacManus in the first instance, then David Kent.
