A few more liveaboard boaters are needed to attend the River Avon Users Forum meetings to represent the boating community. The next meeting is on Tuesday 11th July at 7.30pm in Saltford Rowing Club, Bath Road, Saltford, BS31 3JS (next to Saltford Marina).
Please consider getting involved if you travel on the River Avon. The forum meetings involve discussions about mooring, especially at Mead Lane, among other things. One or two liveaboard boaters plan to go, please add to their voices or be there to give them some moral support.
It’s really important that we have an effective voice on such forums so please consider going to the next meeting or to attending it regularly.
The Mead Lane moorings at Saltford are still being trialled by BaNES Council, who support boaters mooring there for 14 days.
Please download and complete this feedback form:
mead_lane_mooring_trial_feedback_form about the moorings at Mead Lane. Positive comments will encourage the Council to continue the moorings when the trial period is over. Please email the form to firstname.lastname@example.org – or post it to the address on the form. If BaNES Council receives negative feedback, the Council could decide that the mooring trial is a failure and we may lose this mooring completely. If boaters overstay, it is likely that we will lose this mooring completely.
A BaNES consultation about parking vehicles in Mead Lane will begin soon. The residents have been pushing for double yellow lines all along Mead Lane.
To ensure that the boating community can carry on using this mooring, please complete a feedback form, please keep to the 14 day limit and please park vehicles considerately.
