Annual Licenced Moorings


An annual licence (1st April – 31st March), to lay a swinging mooring, may be granted by the Harbour Master, on a case by case basis, to persons living at the waterside (Oreston, Hooe Lake and Turnchapel). 

Licences are granted on the understanding that they do not give permanent mooring rights or title of fundus or foreshore and cannot be included in any property sales/ transfers.
