Canal & River Trust Launch South East Visitor Mooring Consultation

Issue date: 25th January 2013

Canal & River Trust is inviting canal users in their south east region, to comment on proposals for changes to the maximum stay times at 22 of the most popular visitor mooring sites.

Jeff Whyatt, the waterway manager discussed these at his local user group meetings over the past couple of years and Julia Moore helped him with local discussions with representatives of boating organisations. This resulted in a detailed schedule of proposed changes which they would like to start putting in place for April of this year. More recently, their new board of Trustees and the Trust Council considered national policy relating to casual mooring along the towpath and confirmed, amongst other things, the importance of measures to improve compliance with visitor mooring rules.

Read the South East Visitor Mooring proposals and send your feedback using the special form by 1st March 2013.
