The K&A Boaters’ Action Group will be holding a telephone meeting on Monday 30th November 2020 at 7.30pm-9.30pm to discuss the current CRT consultation on changes to the Boat Licence Terms and Conditions. We are very concerned that the proposals will have serious implications for all boaters but especially for liveaboards.

CRT has reneged on the agreement that it made in May 2019 with boaters and Wadworths Brewery to re-instate the boaters’ rubbish bins at the Bridge Inn, Horton, near Devizes.
In December 2019, fourteen boaters sent a complaint to Acting Regional Director Jon Horsfall that no progress had been made on constructing the proposed new bin site at the pub and also that the water tap at the Bridge Inn had been out of service since November 2019.
The next meeting of the K&A Boaters’ Action Group will be on Monday 14th October 2019 at 7.30pm at the Somerset Arms, High St, Semington BA14 6JR, a 5 minute walk south from the canal bridge. All are welcome. The meeting will focus on action against CRT enforcement and an update on CRT plans for the K&A.
