The next meeting of the K&A boaters action group will be on Monday 13th April at 7.30pm in Devizes. Please come and get involved in defending and promoting the boating community on the K&A and also to raise any concerns that you may have about CRT enforcement; the K&A Interim 12-month Local Plan; CRT’s new policy towards boaters without home moorings and CRT’s draconian and excessive proposals for changes to the Boat Licence Terms and Conditions.
On 30th January, CRT announced changes to the boat licence terms and conditions which it claims are not “a significant change of policy by the Trust”. However, many of these changes seek to unlawfully remove the rights of boaters contrary to the British Waterways Act 1995. To the extent that the changes are unlawful, they also fall foul of the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008, and some of the proposed changes breach the Data Protection Act 1998.
