Building a jetty in the sea

Anyone know the rules or regulations about building a jetty or mini pier into the sea. Does it need planning ?

Building a jetty in the sea

As far as I know it's governed by Crown Estates. So that would be my first port of call for your area.

Certainly does in Scotland. Also there has to be an environmental assessment from, I think, Marine Scotland, so that you don't dump potentially toxic stuff into the sea. For instance, you may have to wash any material before you dump it into the sea, I kid you not.

I would imagine that, if you're going to go below low water, you'll have to ask the Crown Commissioners too, as it's their land.

I think that's a far from exhaustive list.

Always thought the Queen owned the area between Low and High water.

Just a lot! It's virtually impossible around these parts. Dropping a mooring block requires handing over a kidney. :-(

I suspect that even if you could get all the necessary approvals , they would include strict conditions of maintenance ( ie navigation lights ) .

I used to work at a firm that had it's own jetty on the Thames . Any lighting failure was considered to be a major emergency requiring immediate rectification !

'Scat t’Larrups'

Not many people in Cornwall could translate this. It's very specific to my part of the County.

Loosely translated it means 'smashed to bits'.

Thanks guys. Local council search at the address showed me the house next door applied for planning permission for its jetty and balcony with steps to the jetty. So a council thing is definitely needed amongst what ever else
