At the end of March this year the boating associations held a meeting with CRT to discuss mooring strategy. It was agreed that there was a need for evidence-based data gathering before further changes were made to Visitor Moorings. Richard Parry agreed and instructed Sally Ash that no more changes should be made to visitor moorings this year. The idea was that demand should be reviewed over the summer and data gathered on ease of mooring on existing VM's, pinch points, how long is the period of high demand and suggestions for new VM’s etc. This could then be shared so that informed decisions could be made by CRT with broad support.

The June figure shows CPI as 1.9%. We propose applying CPI to current charges for all our navigation registration schemes, including private, commercial, unpowered boats and our block registration agreements.
