It is clear that moorings of all types are attracting the attention of cash-strapped councils. The position and advice, distilled and published by the RBOA and reported on this site in 2010 is being modified by the VOA (the Valuation Office Agency) as councils force case law judgement. It is clear that paying council tax is going to become a much more common component of mooring costs, whether levied through marinas passing on council imposed bills as is happening in Leicestershire or directly on CRT managed moorings.

Interesting line in the Online Mooring Policy document, about ‘complaints from local residents’ (near the end – stay awake there).

We expect these documents to be the subject of BW copyright action so copy and survive – get them out there as fast as possible.
