I thought it was well known that at this  time of year the rangers have always tended to use their discretion and applied a light touch on the 24 hour rule unless overstaying was accompanied by other issues.

In any event in this year not sure overstayers could be made to move on in any case . I thought the BA current view was we should not be moving on the water in case we spread covid. (TIC) and liveaboards could ignore the 24 hour rule.

I am far more concerned about the tresspass law that Paladine has brought to our attention. It could, and I repeat could, bring an end to wild mooring. The law is of course being designed to protect wealthy landowners, and not as I understand it, for the general public good. We must wait and see.

A point of order - are all landowners wealthy? Or is the point that is being made just now, that this new law is only for the protection of those who are wealthy?

Surely  any landowner could expect the law to protect his land from trespass ?

I fully understand how this may effect wild mooring.

It may well be that the proposed legislation would not apply to anything that happens on the Broads. We'll have to wait and see.

But in any case, the consultation mentions the proposal of lowering the number of vehicles needing to be involved in an unauthorised encampment before police powers can be exercised from six to two or more vehicles. In which case, your average boater, who wishes to wild (or trespass) moor won't be affected.

I seem to think that the act of trespassing on somebodies land was decriminalised a few years ago,  However I am not 100% certain regarding this.  If so I doubt the police would be interested as it would be a civil offence and not a criminal one.  

Happy New year to everyone.  Smile
