Mooring Issues

There is an increasing number of craft appearing on the waterways but only a limited number of moorings. IWA is working with navigation authorities, waterway user representative bodies and boaters to help solve this issue in a number of ways.

Long Term Moorings - It is important for there to be a balance of both on-line and off-line mooring provision with an affordable pricing structure which reflects the provision of facilities. Find out more

Residential Moorings - IWA supports residential boating and the provision of appropriate moorings for residential use. Find out more

Visitor Moorings - There is concern across navigation authorities, waterway user representative bodies and boaters themselves about the problem of boats overstaying on visitor moorings across the waterways network and the lack of sufficient visitor moorings in some areas. Find out more
