A brief summary from the TNUF (Thames Navigation Users Forum) which I attended yesterday (22nd sep).
Reading Reach;_ ongoing collaboration with Reading Borough Council. Some housing benefit being paid to itinerants which is going to the EA as licence fee.
4 Successful prosecutions.
New Pilot scheme:-
Pilot trial of a new web site to locate EA 24 hour visitor moorings. Lots of info on each mooring including any charges and ability to register your arrival and pay any fee required.
Intention is to gather more revenue for the EA from visiting moorers and monitor the sites.
Have a look and see what you think
I had a one to one discussion with Barry Russell, the new waterways manager, about the state of the river above Oxford.
