What measures must apply for a permit?
The application form must be used when you apply to the Port of Trondheim for measures pursuant to the Ports and Waters Act. You must have a permit before you can establish measures that can affect safety, traffic or defense and emergency preparedness interests at sea.
By measures is meant:
- Construction of quays, piers and jetties
- Mooring facility
- Laying wires, pipes and more in the sea
- Excavation, dredging and dumping
However, the list is not exhaustive. Other measures that may hinder, or make difficult other use or normal traffic in the water, are also subject to application, such as a boat race or other traffic activity.
What should the application contain?
The application must contain a thorough description of the measure and how it is planned to be carried out. The measure must be drawn on a map at a scale of 1: 1000 where this is available. If not, maps at a scale of 1: 5000 must be used. This is necessary in order to be able to assess the measure’s significance for safety and accessibility. It must also be documented that the measure applied for does not conflict with the approved area plan, cf. section 14 of the Ports and Waters Act.
The application must also contain contact information for the responsible applicant, the correct invoice address and information about current agreements with landowners.
Case processing time and fee
If the measure requires a permit, the Port of Trondheim must by law notify the applicant in writing within four weeks after the application has been received. The notification shall state the expected case processing time.
A case processing fee will be charged when processing your application.
