A report by CRT on last year’s sales of winter moorings shows the following numbers of permits sold in each price bracket:
Price per metre No sold
The total number of months booked was 2305, raising a total income of £314,149.40.
CRT has ‘rationalised’ the winter moorings on offer for 2019/20, removing sites where no winter moorings were sold last year. Around 100 sites will be available between 1st November and 29th February, compared to 135 in 2018.
There are seven price bands, which reflect each site’s relative attractiveness, such as location and facilities, the level of demand from boaters, and to ensure that prices are in line with private mooring operators and CRT’s own long-term mooring sites. Permits will be charged per metre, per month rate, and boaters can book moorings in increments of one month. The price bands have had a 3% inflation increase applied. 36 sites have moved into lower price bands and 25 have moved into higher price bands; the rest stay the same. Two new price bands have been added this year. The 2019/20 price bands are:
Band 0: £20.00 (new)
Band 1: £18.50
Band 2: £16.50
Band 3: £14.30
Band 4: £10.60
Band 5: £8.50 (new)
Band 6: £6.90
