The Environment Agency, who are the navigation authority for the non-tidal Thames, and other waterways including the River Medway and Anglian region, have been consulting with river users about proposed increases in charges for 2018.
The consultation closed yesterday and the TMBA has submitted a comprehensive and detailed response on behalf of its members. All members were canvassed for their views and over 40% responded. As well as answering specific questions posed by the consultation, the TMBA also took the opportunity to draw attention to many of the issues currently affecting enjoyment of the river by powered craft and other users.
A copy of the TMBA response has been sent to all members.
Membership of the TMBA is open to all those keeping or using a powered craft on the non-tidal River Thames and having a current EA licence to use the river.
