Please see important update from the Environment Agency below - 4 May 2020
We are aware communities, businesses and the environment rely on our services. This includes the advice and guidance we offer, our regulatory work which continues to protect the environment, people and wildlife from harm, managing the risks of flooding and coastal erosion, and other roles. The main points from the update are:
The Environment Agency asks the owners of all boats kept or used on our managed waterways not to make any boat journeys, other than to access essential services and facilities
We advise our customers to stay at home rather than self-isolating aboard, unless your boat is your primary residence. This is so you do not put yourself at increased risk or place additional burden upon our facilities.
We will not provide assisted passage (staff to operate locks) at any of our lock sites but locks will remain open for self-service use where possible. This will allow those living aboard their boats to reach essential services if they need to.
At the few locks where self-service is not possible, our local teams will put special temporary operating arrangements in place to allow boats to return to their home moorings.
We will lift time restrictions on the short stay moorings we own or manage, to assist those who live aboard their boats so they can access essential services.
We will do the very best we can to keep open the essential facilities we provide (e.g. water supply, sewage pump-out and chemical toilet disposal), for those who need them. However our staff will not be able to offer the sale of keys, cards or tokens. These essential services will not include the provision of shower and toilet facilities.
However, any travel on our waterways should still be minimised to the essential movement outlined above.
We will keep these restrictions under constant review in the light of the developing situation and advice from Government. It goes without saying that our priority is to keep our staff and customers safe, and we will be working to make sure that everybody can get back to enjoying everything our waterways have to offer as soon as it is possible. You will appreciate our National Customer Contact Centre is very busy at this time, please help us by getting in touch only if its essential. If you do need to contact us, we encourage you to email us at email@example.com. For the full Environment Agency update please click here
Thank you all for your co-operation during these very challenging times for everyone.
