EA Short Stay Moorings Contract Concerns
After many attempts to get more detailed information regarding the EA’s proposed Moorings management contract with DE, river user representatives finally received draft copy of intended signage on 22nd October and we were given until noon last Monday (26th) to comment..
The ATYC immediately contacted the RYA and sought and obtained legal opinion and support. The RYA instructed solicitors to respond and we, together with other river user groups, have submitted clear statements of our concerns. We await the EA’s response.
Full details have been sent to ATYC Member Clubs.
The new arrangements are due to apply from today, Monday, 2nd November, but as far as we are aware no notices have yet been displayed and we have categoric assurance from the EA that no penalty action will be taken before appropriate signage is in place.
