Here is the internal CRT document that outlines the process by which a customer is required to take out a short term licence and the steps from there to a Section 8 action.
Usually when CRT wins a Section 8 case it publishes the judgement (if there is one) on its web site. However, it made an exception in the case it won against Geoffrey Mayers, the reason being that this judgement confirms that it would be unlawful for CRT to set a minimum distance that continuous cruisers must travel to comply with the law. The Judge also stated that a boat with a home mooring does not have to actually use its mooring, something else that CRT would prefer us not to know about.
Life along the Kennet and Avon canal has of late adopted a gently surreal Kafkaesque tone.
The latest offering from the CART is a letter telling people they haven’t ‘moved through enough neighbourhoods’ in the last three months. it ends with a black edged obituary box stating “YOU ARE AT RISK OF LOSING YOUR BOAT’.
In direct contradiction of an undertaking given to the boating organisations, CRT has published a map of places in an attempt to define the word ‘place’ as used in Section 17 3 c ii of the 1995 British Waterways Act, deliberately left ambiguous by Parliament.
