The Royal Docks Management Authority Limited holds a 225-year lease over the entire water area of the Royal Docks, including the King George V lock, five bridges, impounding station and some limited land areas. Partly funded by the owners of the land surrounding the water and partly through commercial income raised by RoDMA for the provision of services. The Authority provides the certainty of sound long term water management, combining the interests of adjacent landowners, applying the responsibilities and resources for effective management, and protecting permanent public access to quayside and water areas.
RoDMA’s core responsibility is to maintain, repair and refurbish the marine engineering infrastructure. They also preserve the water quality and level in the docks.
