Royal Yachting Association Planning and Environmental Law Handbook UK and Northern Ireland


The RYA sought legal advice to update the RYA planning and environmental handbook: Guidance on Facilities Development for Recreational Boating in the UK.


We undertook a robust review of the current handbook and used their expert knowledge to produce a new complete guide to reflect both current and emerging legal and policy frameworks throughout the UK and Northern Ireland.  We also set up an RYA planning helpline to provide members and clubs with direct access to specialist planning and environmental law advice.


RYA received an updated, comprehensive handbook which could be accessed by all members – throughout the UK and Northern Ireland - to assist with planning concerns and were also able to access the RYA planning helpline.

We continue to assist all UK clubs with planning issues through our dedicated planning helpline.
