"The Canal & River Trust has reluctantly concluded that roving mooring permits, which it was proposing to introduce in two local areas from April 2014, cannot be used to deal with localised issues of mooring congestion on the waterways. This follows further consideration of legal issues which raised doubts about the practical implications of implementing the scheme.
NABO comments on the recent legal action between NBTA and CRT
We ask has this muddied the waters further or has CRT succeeded in getting formal legal support for their ‘guidance for boaters without a home mooring’ ?
NABO attended the launch of Thames River Watch in London on the 17th of February - an initiative to engage community groups, individuals, schools and riverside businesses aiming to raise awareness of the environmental issues that the river faces by enabling volunteers to provide pro-active support and involvement in improving the health of the river.
The extreme weather that we’ve all been subject to this year has had a severe impact across our historic network of canals and rivers. CRT’s teams are battling to protect our waterways from damage. However, they urgently need our support to permanent damage to any of our precious canals and river navigations.
NABO’s Council has agreed to immediately contribute £250 to this appeal and urges all our members to contribute whatever they can.
