Secretary of State for Transport

Secretary of State for Transport makes Harbour Revision Order in respect of the Port of Weston, paving the way to refurbishment and revitalisation of that harbour. The Secretary of State for Transport has decided to make a Harbour Revision Order confirming Westlink Holdings Limited (in place of the British Waterways Board) as the harbour authority for the historic Port of Weston, adjacent to the Manchester Ship Canal. The making of the Order opens the way for revitalisation of the Port as a working dock and harbour.

Andrew Newcombe, instructed by Winckworth Sherwood, advised the promoters of the order and appeared at the inquiry.
