Notices to Mariners (NtM) from the Crouch Harbour Authority
NTM NO.10 OF 2020 -WEDNESDAY 25TH MARCH 2020
COVID 19 Restrictions
Recreational and Leisure Activities
We are issuing this notice in line with current Government Coronavirus (COVID 19) restrictions issued on Monday 23 March 2020.
To reduce social contact travel and potential strain on emergency services, we strongly recommend that all recreational and leisure activities on the tidal rivers Crouch and Roach are avoided until the current Government restrictions are relaxed.
Our priority is to keep the harbour open and functioning as long as possible. From 9 March the Crouch Harbour Authority implemented contingency planning measures to separate key workers who maintain our harbour patrols, pilot services and office staff. As a result of our resilience measures we have a reduced capability in responding to leisure incidents and enquiries. Although the harbour office is closed to the public it remains open for business by email and telephone. We regret that there may be delays when responding to routine enquiries.
We ask for your cooperation and understanding during the National Emergency.
