Boat Licensing and Moorings

NABO was victorious in taking BW to the Waterway Ombudsman over the lack of consultation concerning boat licence fee increases.

NABO has also brought to BW’s attention inadequacies in its Licence and Mooring Permit Conditions which are being rectified.

NABO is working with BW in seeking a legally sound means of combatting abuse and overstaying on public moorings that has minimum impact on the freedom of movement of conscientious boaters. This is leading to extensive modifications to the content and application of BW’s trial Moorings Code.
