Online mooring policy updated
The Canal & River Trust is to change the short-term licences it offers to visiting boaters following a national licensing consultation.
The Trust will continue to offer short term licences for visitors and those who have boats off the water and will remove the daily licence currently offered. Provision will be made for discounts for legitimate cruising clubs hosting events that require one day licences.
“Short-term licences are valuable to visiting boaters and those who keep their boats out of the water,” said Jon Horsfall, Trust head of customer services.
“We want to continue to offer this service so every boater has the chance to discover our wonderful waterways. This needs to be balanced with the cost savings we need to find as a charity.”
In addition, the Trust has updated its online mooring policy with two key areas of change.
These are the ending of its automatic online reduction policy and single end of garden mooring applications will now be considered against privately-owned land, not just land with a residential dwelling.
Previously the charity has removed one long-term online mooring for the creation of every ten off-line marina moorings with nearly 600 online permanent moorings removed over the past ten years.
The Trust now believes new linear moorings may be appropriate if they meet strict criteria.
Moorings that have been removed will not be reinstated.
