Local Notices to Mariners

Local Notices to Mariners are issued by the harbour master on a regular basis to inform mariners of any operations or works taking place in the harbour which may affect the safety of navigation. These are distributed to all the marine operations involved in the harbour area, as well as adjacent harbour masters, local marine offices and notice boards at harbour access points.

Do you want to receive Poole’s Local Notice to Mariners direct to your inbox? If so, sign up here.
