NABO has today made a Press Release clarifying its position on the whole question of mooring regulations on the waterways managed by the Canal and River Trust. The Trust has recently issued a consultation document that outlines its plans for the South Eastern part of the Waterways and many of their proposals have enraged the boat owning community in general.
At its most recent meeting at the end of November, NABO Council agreed to formally endorse the Key Points in the Boaters Manifesto. NABO Vice Chair, Simon Robbins said:
“We are pleased to see that an independent group of boaters shares broadly the same concerns as we identified in our formal submission to DEFRA during the Summer, about ensuring that navigation remains a central element in the proposed Canal and River Trust.
