Hello,

Firstly, CRT are not trying to introduce roving permits in Uxbridge, they are working with the boaters towards a mutual solution that fits everyone.

Secondly, its very much early days and nothing has yet been decided.

Early in September last year, I heard about a proposal that was being discussed within CaRT for what they were calling "community moorings". The main features of these were:

1: a permit that would be available for purchase by CCers allowing them to remain within a restricted area, still moving regularly but in a way that did not comply with CaRT's interpretation of the CCing requirements.

2: this permit would only be available to people whose boats had been seen regularly in the relevant area recently.

3: the permits would not be transferable to another person

4: if a person decides not to renew their permit at any time, they will lose the right to the permit.

The intention was to create "grandfather rights", allowing a limited, and diminishing, number of boaters to remain in a popular area while forcing other boaters either to find a permanent mooring or keep moving over a wider area.

My understanding is that this is in all significant respects exactly what was being proposed in Uxbridge.
