  1. As said above, this scenario falls outside of the EPA. It's worth trying the council but they are under no obligation to act.
  2. All mobile numbers here: https://www.watersidemooring.com/Features/View/25/meet-the-team
  3. The mooring operator is quite possibly CRT.
  4. Interesting point but in my experience it doesn't work that way. What I can say for definite is that council's cannot prosecute cars for noise nuisance (except perhaps when someone is habitually revving their engine on their own driveway). They can and do prosecute for dogs barking from a domestic property. My opinion is that they would treat boats similarly to cars. I'm unaware of any noise nuisance cases against boat which have suceeded. Maybe others know different. The OP's best bet in this case would be to try all avenues: 1. CRT. 2. The mooring operator. 3. The police. 4. The Council. 5. The boat occupier (if they dare)
  5. It's an arguable technicality. The difficulty is that the boat can move. If an enforcement notice was served, the boat could move on the day the notice came into effect, this would 'abate the nuisance'. The following day the boat could return and start a legally new nuisance. The council and the courts know this so they won't act.
  6. That link is poorly written but noise nuisance can occur at any time. After 11pm there is a greater presumption of the need for quiet though. Having said that, councils can ordinarily only address noise nuisance from static premises. Noise from cars or boats or general noise in the street would be dealt with by the police as a breach of the peace or by way of a specific injunction. Having said all that, it's probably worth contacting you local council's environmental health / noise nuisance team. In some cases, although they have no legal powers when it comes to boats, they may be willing to act on a discretionary basis by sending out an official looking letter, which often does the trick. May I ask what canal or river this boat is on?
  7. You could get nearly 2 pints in the pub for that! Another vote for the Cape then.
  8. Maybe. But what about this? https://www.yourvotematters.co.uk/can-i-vote/with-no-fixed-address It is surely possible to have a mooring but still be of no fixed address.
  9. Correct. Feel free to PM me. The inverter is this one https://www.amazon.co.uk/Silverline-Silverstorm-444658-Inverter-2000/dp/B002QRWHBK Cheap but far more solid than many I've seen. MSW ran everything of mine except washing machine and electric toothbrush.
  10. Thanks. From the link: If you live on a boat, houseboat or similar residence which has a fixed or permanent mooring then you can register at that address. You can register online at gov.uk/register-to-vote. If you do not have a permanent mooring then you can register either at a place where you spend most of your time or have some connection. This could be the place where you were last permanently registered or, for example, a boatyard that you use for maintenance. As usual, the implied assumption is that if you have a mooring, you spend most of your time there. It seems inconceivable to most that someone might have a mooring that they hardly ever use but choose to keep anyway. Some boaters who have moorings do more genuine cruising than those who have no mooring at all.
  11. I have a spare 2000w Silverline MSW which I could be tempted to sell for not very much money. It worked fine until I upgraded to a fancy PSW.
  12. I haven't pretended anything. In fact I've been completely open with all relevant authorities about this at all times. I have been very clear about what my living arrangement are. As far as I'm concerned having post delivered to an address does not necessarily imply occupation. I could have PO Box - it wouldn't mean I lived in the post office. However, my initial question was not about that, it was about proving my living arrangements formally. It's never occurred to me before, but by having my post sent to an address I don't live at, I've been left with no formal option I can think of. I asked the forum if they could think of anything and nobody could. So I have my answer. With hindsight, I would have been better to have my post sent to a property with 2 occupants. Thanks for all the replies.
  13. I'm registered to vote, but not there.
