Proposals for navigation boat registration charges 2019 to 2021

Closes 30 Aug 2018

Opened 19 Jul 2018

Overview

We are consulting on proposals to increase navigation boat registration charges for 2019 to 2020 and 2020 to 2021.

The current cost of the service we provide across our waterways far exceeds the income we receive from customer charges. To make our waterways more financially sustainable, we are carrying out a full strategic review of navigation charges. We are committed to making sure our charges are fair and transparent, and linked more closely to the cost of the service we provide for boating customers.

This 2-year proposal will allow us time to fully develop our future charging plans and look at new ways to fund the service. We will use feedback from customers to help shape our work to become more financially sustainable, whilst providing customers with greater certainty around the charges they’ll need to pay until 2021.
