(2)Subject to the next following section, a harbour revision order shall not be made in relation to a harbour by the appropriate Minister—

(a)except upon written application in that behalf made to him by the authority engaged in improving, maintaining or managing it or by a person appearing to him to have a substantial interest or body representative of persons appearing to him to have such an interest; and

(b)unless the appropriate Minister is satisfied that the making of the order is desirable in the interests of securing the improvement, maintenance or management of the harbour in an efficient and economical manner or of facilitating the efficient and economic transport of goods or passengers by sea [F1or in the interests of the recreational use of sea-going ships].

[F2(2A)The objects for achieving all or any of which a harbour revision order may be made in relation to a harbour include repealing superseded, obsolete or otherwise unnecessary statutory provisions of local application affecting the harbour, or consolidating any statutory provisions of local application affecting the harbour; and subsection (2)(b) of this section does not apply to an order in so far as it is made for objects mentioned in this subsection.]

(a)the closing of part of the harbour,

(b)a reduction in the facilities available in the harbour, or

(a)on his being summarily convicted, of the infliction on him of a penalty other than a fine or of [F8

(i)in the case of an offence triable either summarily or on indictment, the infliction on him of a fine exceeding the prescribed sum within the meaning of section 32 of the M1Magistrates’ Courts Act 1980 or section 289B of the M2 Criminal Procedure (Scotland) Act 1975;

[F11(4A)Where two or more harbours are being improved, maintained or managed by the same harbour authority or by harbour authorities which are members of the same group, a harbour revision order may relate to more than one of the harbours; and for this purpose two authorities are members of the same group if one is a subsidiary (within the meaning of the Companies Act 1985) of the other or both are subsidiaries of another company (within the meaning of that Act).]
