Works Licence application for a new Shrape navigation beacon

Works Licence application No. W01/11. 

Cowes Harbour Commission is advertising a Works Licence application for the installation of a new navigation beacon to mark the northern extremity of the Shrape Mud at East Cowes.

Location: 370m northwest of Old Castle Point on the 2m below chart datum contour in position:

50 46.09N; 01 16.90W

Description of Works: A steel or GRP pile will be driven into the seabed and fitted with a red can top mark, flashing red light and a tide gauge.

It is hoped that the installation of this new navigation mark will prevent the grounding of numerous small craft on ‘The Shrape Mud’ each year.
