Liveaboard boaters will address BaNES Council on the importance of keeping the moorings at Mead Lane, Saltford open on Thursday 16th January 2020. The consultation report will be discussed by the Council’s cabinet at 7pm on 16th January at The Guildhall, Bath. The meeting is open to the public; Mead Lane moorings is item 15 on the agenda. The Council’s cabinet will take a final vote on which of the options outlined in the consultation report it will adopt.
The consultation report appears to slightly favour keeping the current mix of 14 day and 48 hour moorings or increasing the space for 14 day mooring over other options, but there are other factors to be taken into account such as cost to the Council and which body would carry out enforcement of mooring time limits.
The consultation was carried out in autumn 2019 by independent consultants Lemon Gazelle. The consultation report is online here
