It is really important that the views of boaters without a home mooring are represented in this consultation. CRT makes two proposals to increase the cost of a boat licence without a home mooring. There is no legal justification for this. It is discriminatory and unfair. Increasing the licence fee for boaters without a home mooring will drive some of our community off the canal and into homelessness. Please complete the consultation questionnaire opposing these proposals.
The most important questions are 24, 25 and 26 (increases in fees without a home mooring) and 1 (increased fees for widebeams). Also important are question 14 (proposals to get rid of the prompt payment discount that many rely on to make the licence affordable) and question 27 (phasing in any increases over a set period).
