CRT are proposing to change the rules under which boaters have built their lives and living arrangements over decades. There has not been genuine consultation. Are the rights of rowers to use the waterways for a hobby more important than the rights of boaters to a home in their area? Can’t we all share the waterways?

Rowers are perfectly capable enjoying their hobby today, and do so. Displacing people form their homes whilst there is such lack of affordable housing is gross and disproportionate.

London is home for many boat dwellers! The canals have been their home for many years. They are not causing any harm.

I grew up near the Thames & found boats moored there INCREASED my feeling of safety on the towpath. All bargees should have the right to a stable home & civil rights with a secure mooring.

This proposal must be named "Water Unsafety Zones" while pushing out the constant canal users to the outside of the city and making the canal less safer for every each its user. If there is no other option, as an alternative proposal, rowers and rower clubs could be moved to the outside of the city. Boats are homes not hobbies, especially city like London has a housing problem. This proposal is not proposing any solution, but more unsolvable problems in the long and short term.

Thanks for adding your voice.
