Welcome aboard, Chichester Harbour Conservancy

Chichester Harbour in southern England is amongst the largest recreational harbours in the UK, extending over 11 square miles at high tide and attracting 25,000 people annually onto its waters.

As well as being one of the busiest and most-loved recreational harbours in the UK, it is also an internationally protected landscape; a beautiful mix of saltmarsh, mud flats, sand dunes, pasture and ancient woodland.

Busy boating

The Harbour has a resident fleet of over 10,500 leisure vessels, with around half being larger boats kept on the 2,000 marina berths and 3,200 swinging moorings in the Harbour.

Chichester’s marinas are operated by a number of companies, including Harbour Assist customers Emsworth Yacht Harbour and Birdham Pool Marina. The Conservancy manages the bulk of the moorings.

About the Conservancy

Chichester Harbour Conservancy was established by Act of Parliament in 1971 to maintain the Harbour for recreation and leisure, nature conservation and natural beauty.

As the statutory Harbour Authority, it is responsible for the safety of navigation, the regulation of moorings, works and dredging, enforcement of harbour byelaws and the collection of dues and charges.
