Port of Dover Access & use
Dover Harbour Board (DHB) owns and controls a significant area of land in Dover, principally the Eastern Docks, the Seafront/Promenade, Dover Marina, the Cruise Terminals, Western Docks and Port Zone.
While some of these areas are freely accessible by members of the public, DHB exercises ultimate control over all uses of its land. This is reinforced under DHB’s byelaws, whereby no person is entitled to enter in or remain on DHB premises unless he has lawful business or has received permission to do so. Furthermore, as a responsible landowner, DHB is committed to ensuring that anything done on its premises is undertaken in a professional and safe manner.
DHB aims to minimise and control the risks so that the Port of Dover remains a safe place for all. To this end, DHB applies health and safety regulations and sets its own standards and procedures to apply specifically to the use of its land.
DHB’s principal sites are the operational areas of the Eastern and Western Docks (together, the Port of Dover), where DHB oversees the throughput of around 13 million passengers and five million vehicles each year (over two million of which are lorries/HGVs, in connection with its roll-on roll-off ferry operation), as well as other major shipping activities such as general cargo, cruising and a marina. Given the volume of traffic and visitors, the Port of Dover is an extremely busy area with a variety of port operations that may potentially cause hazards.
DHB has therefore produced the Access & Use guide, which provides details of the type of access application you need to make, the purpose of which is to draw attention to the key issues for consideration when using or working on DHB premises.
The Access & Use Guide is applicable to anyone undertaking work on DHB Premises with the exception of contractors appointed by DHB to do works on behalf of DHB.
The Port of Dover would appreciate your feedback on this Guide and the processes it is currently operating. If you have any comments or suggestions for improvement, please contact Strategy & Risk Management at email@example.com
