    So what is the definition of the “harbour area”?
    If it is the entire Blackwater then we will no longer be able to visit our favourite places.

    I know nothing else. Like anywhere (including Holland) the enforcement is likely to be almost non-existent.

    I wonder if they means boats on residential moorings, otherwise it might be interesting removing the mooring of a boat moored off in Bradwell Marina

    ? The refuse facilities for boats are still there. I used them this week, and the week before, and the week before.

    I think that most of us would wish for an area such as the upper Blackwater which is much used for leisure to be as clean as possible, but such a ruling will be unenforceable, which negates the purpose of the exercise. My interpretation of 'the harbour area' was the river from Maldon towards Heybridge, but this is still a large volume of water and I doubt if recreational sailors contribute much to the pollution. A policy of education and provision of decent facilities would be much more effective.
