Canal & River Trust has invited waterways users to comment on proposals for changes to the maximum stay times at 22 of the most popular visitor mooring sites in the London area.
Jeff Whyatt, waterway manager, has discussed these at CRT local user group meetings over the past couple of years and Julia Moore helped him with local discussions with representatives of boating organisations. This resulted in a detailed schedule of proposed changes which they would like to start putting in place for April of this year. More recently, CRT's trustees and Council have considered national policy relating to casual mooring along the towpath and confirmed, amongst other things, the importance of measures to improve compliance with visitor mooring rules.
Read the South East Visitor Mooring proposals and send your comments using the feedback form by 1st March 2013.
CRT is encouraging this information to be shared with those without internet access. Paper copies of the document and feedback form can be posted to anyone on request by calling 03030 404040.
This and other waterways news can be found in the Inland Waterways Association (IWA) February bulletin.
