Mooring Rules


Successful Applicants must …
*Live in Civil Parish of Cantley (ie Cantley, Limpenhoe and Southwood). (Temporary exceptions will be made only if a mooring is available after all applications have been considered from within this area.)
*Must wholly and exclusively own their boat or have stated number of owners, percentage share of each owner and attached a completed Application Form from each owner. (proof of ownership may be required).

*Hold current Broads Authority licence (certificate to be produced if required).
*Be sufficiently competent in boat handling or undertake to take necessary training.
*Have contributed to the Staithe Project and/or be prepared to help with the management or maintenance of the Staithe in the future.
*Be prepared to help with training and/or fund raising activities.
*Be prepared to pay mooring fees annually in advance by direct debit.
*Keep the Staithe area clear from any encumbrances.
*Give accurate information on application form.
*Must re-apply if they change their boat.
*Notify any change of ownership, so the eligibility can be reviewed and new owner’s priority can be assessed against any waiting list for moorings.
*Agree that if their boat becomes unserviceable, the licence expires or the mooring fees are overdue the Trustees have the right to remove the boat after 28 days.
*Observe any rules that the Trustees may from time to time deem necessary.

Boat must …
*be in serviceable and well maintained condition
*be within the stated length and width given on the application form
*be kept in a clean and tidy condition
*be secured to pontoon in appropriate manner and moorings checked weekly

Use of Pontoons and Staithe …
*the pontoons to be kept clear at all times
*anglers using the pontoons must be treated with respect
*no barbecues or fires on pontoons or Staithe area
*no parking of cars or trailers on slip access road or turning circle

Mooring Fees…
*will be set by the trustees and reviewed annually
*will be for the period 1st April to 31st March each year

Moorings …
*will be allocated by the trustees according to the allocation criteria
*will be reviewed every 5 years, unless there is any material change in any of the qualifying criteria in the existing allocation matrix
*cannot be sub-let or used to moor a boat other than the one defined in the application

The main limiting factor on the pontoon is the distance between the fingers. This means that owners of narrow boats may appear to get preference over owners of slightly wider boats.

Parking at the Staithe is limited to the Reedcutter car park. Please observe any restrictions and treat the personnel at the Reedcutter with respect.

In order to meet our expected running costs the mooring fees are likely to be between £300 and £400 pa.

Please note that a mooring is not for life. The Trustees will determine the allocation of all mooring annually in the light of demand and any other criteria deemed relevant.

The Trustees decision is FINAL

These rules were adopted at the first meeting of the Cantley Staithe Charitable Association on 15.06.10
