    2019-2020 Licence Fees Announced

    The only "logic" I can see is that taking a narrow boat as 6' 10" = 2.08m 2.08 + 4% = 2.16m 2.16 + 50% = 3.24m

    Well a result. Emailed CART this afternoon saying more or less the above and within the hour they had changed the beam on their records to 3.13m. This means the boat is now in Band 2 saving 10% when the new pricing is fully implemented.

    Just a follow up, been to the boat today (out of the water on hard standing) and at the widest point I held a vertical (using spirit level) post down to the ground and drove a peg into the ground on both sides. Measured the distance between and it was 3.13m. So that is 0.2m less that CART has my boat being and therefore within Band 2 not Band 3. Will contact CART to see if they will amend their records from my findings, if not then I will get the guy who did my purchase survey to confirm the actual width.

    Found it :- Based on these considerations, the Trust has decided to combine the current length based bands with new width bands so that craft wider than 2.16m (7”1ft) will pay slightly more on top of the length based charge. Three width bands will be introduced from April 2020 Band 1: 2.16m (7ft 1”) and below Band 2: over 2.16m (7ft 1”) up to and including 3.24M (10ft 7.5’’) Band 3: over 3.24M (10ft 7.5’’) We envisage that ultimately the % surcharge for wider craft will rise to 10% for Band 2 and 20% for Band 3, but it would be introduced in phases over several years (see proposed phasing until 2023 https://canalrivertrust.org.uk/refresh/media/thumbnail/35602-licensing-futures-decision-summary-response.pdf

    Any Idea how this is to be applied? The release says "In addition to length-based pricing, from April 2020 two additional pricing bands for boat widths over 2.16 to 3.24 and those over 3.24 will be introduced. " Just checked and according to CART my boat is 3.33 so app 4" into the higher band. Time to get the angle grinder out!!!!
