I do not believe it! They have launched this week by publishing incorrect eligibility information for Houseboat Certificates repeating the old lie that I have spent many years highlighting to BW.
Just when I think we are finally getting to the end of it through the public consultation,
Simplest thing is to see my complaint in full.
I thought I would have a look at the new website now that CRT is official. I was therefore extremely annoyed and upset to find the following:
*Houseboat is a boat not used for navigation with a home mooring on a Canal and River Trust site which has planning consent for residential use."
Page 2 on the new Boat Licence application form: http://canalrivertrust.org.uk/media/library/1194.pdf
This simply confirms my belief that the same levels of dishonesty and incompetence I and others faced as BW residential mooring customers, over establishing terms and conditions under BW's tenure, are apparently set to continue with CRT.
Please treat this message as a formal complaint under whatever procedure now applies for CRT.
Please would you have the matter corrected at once or otherwise explain why the Canal and River Trust is taking a different position to that I thought we had tortuously settled on this point. I also remind you of your colleague Nigel Johnson's recent High Court evidence on this point.
