The implementation of CRT’s draconian new Licence Terms and Conditions has been delayed by at least a month. In a meeting with some of the boating user groups, CRT stated that the new Terms and Conditions would be implemented on 1st May.

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.
The Data Protection Act entitles individuals to see all the information that an organisation holds on them. This applies to all organisations, not just public sector bodies. To get this information, you need to write to the organisation and say you are making a Subject Access Request under the Data Protection Act for all the information the organisation holds on you. You will need to tell them your name, address and any other information that will prove who you are and help them locate the information, such as a customer number or boat name and registration number.
