Site setting out and gathering existing information today relies on very accurate equipment known as 'Total Stations' I assume the contractor / engineer had the use of one of these(Google it)
They work on extremely accurate GPS coordinates which are transferred to computer generated drawings usually forming the basis of the application. So unless an error was made from inputting the wrong coordinates, it should in theory be identicle to the application drawings.
Another typical reason for an extension of the re-piled finger could be in the actual ordering of the materials involved. Corner piles are normally pre made and if the corner clutches are worked out wrongly it can involve inserting additional piles to correct the error!
I'm not saying these are the reasons for the alleged  variation, or suggesting somehow it makes it right, just putting forward some theories as to why it's been built as it has.
Having been in heavy construction all my life until I retired, I have first hand experience of similar c#*k ups happening, I'm sure when the dust finally settles,the real reasons will be shrouded in arguments that will be hard to counter, this is what happens when profits and additional costs come into the equation. I'm sure this forum will continue to police the situation closely !

I have been studying my iPad and found out how to draw lines.

If you look at Paladine’s drawing he has drawn his lines across the river showing a different perspective than the actual navigation of the river where it bends.

The agreement of the planning application stipulated not to extend beyond the barge.

My new photo from google earth shows a line from BB’s existing mooring to the edge of the barge.

Does the new heading extend beyond the line into the navigational channel?

I don't think it dose but the report for the navigation committee suggests they have built it out 1.2 meters further than agreed with the planning department, so needs putting right.

BELLA wrote, ”The agreement of the planning application stipulated not to extend beyond the barge.”

There was no such agreement or stipulation.

In October, I posted the following:

This is an extract from the BA Delegation Decision Report Sheet, in relation to the application (with my emphasis):

”The floating pontoon is proposed set into the mooring basin, allowing for stern on moorings along a section of the floating pontoon. The mooring plan submitted shows that the mooring layout would not result in any encroachment into the navigation channel in comparison to the existing layout. It is therefore not considered to result in any adverse impacts on navigation and there is no proposal to change how the moorings are used, so no additional impacts on navigation or amenity are considered to result.


Had the works been carried out in accordance with the submitted plan, there would have been no encroachment into the navigation by the boats moored to the pontoons. There has been encroachment, because the pontoons were installed in the wrong positions.The historical position of the barge is only relevant to the mooring of boats to the pontoons.

The unauthorised extension of the pier is a separate issue.

The comments I have made regarding the apparent failure to carry out the work in accordance with the submitted plans have been vindicated by the reports to the Navigation and Planning Committees.

It wasn't discussed at the last planning meeting from what I can see in the minutes, I guess we will have to wait for the next meeting.

Thanks TT.
Strange to not be discussed given the "grave concerns" of the Navigation Committee!

Cheers, Johnboy
