CRT’s Short Term Moorings Framework for Change published in March 2015 states that CRT will always consult users before making changes to visitor moorings, and also that any changes should be based on evidence of a need for the change that is being proposed. On the K&A, CRT has made changes to visitor moorings without any consultation at all and seemingly without any evidence that the changes are needed.
Documents obtained by a Freedom of Information request to BaNES Council, and the response to a recent complaint about proposals to restrict mooring at Mead Lane, Saltford, show that BaNES and CRT are planning a mooring strategy for the River Avon and the K&A Canal between Hanham and Limpley Stoke.
There will be a family-friendly festive get together for boaters on Saturday 12th December, 3pm-9pm, at the Love Lounge, The Bell Inn, Walcot Street, Bath BA1 5BW. The event will include children’s activities, music, information and discussion about what to do if CRT has refused to renew your boat licence for 12 months. There will be time to socialise and sing a few sea shanties too.
