Mooring inspections

All moorings must be lifted and maintained in a safe and efficient condition by an approved mooring contractor on a 2- or 3-year cycle, as a guide here are three easy steps to help. Failure to have your mooring inspected may result in a bylaw fine and cancellation of the site.

Step 1: Reminder inspection is due

  • You will be reminded 6 months before your mooring is due for its 2 or 3 yearly mooring inspection.
  • This will allow enough time to book a mooring service provider so that your mooring is inspected before the due date.

Step 2: Book your inspection in plenty of time

  • See the list of mooring service providers and make sure you book your inspection when requested, to minimise delays.
  • Mooring contractors have a lot of moorings to inspect. They also have to work around weather and tidal conditions.

Step 3: Complete the inspection

When inspected, if the condition of the mooring is acceptable, a mooring inspection certificate will be issued (much like a vehicle warrant of fitness).

Did you know?

The most common cause of mooring failure is lack of maintenance. Please check your mooring regularly.
