U turn on EA registration costs

Did you know you can start your ESOS audit for Phase 2 of the scheme?NABO joined with other Thames boater representatives to object to the Environment Agency’s 2021 proposals to increase boat registration charges across all their waterways of 6% in year 1, 4% in year 2 and 0% in year 3, and also to introduce a new charging mechanism based on the area of a boat. As a result, the EA has revised its proposals! Another win for NABO and the other users groups!
