That will not be sufficient to avoid council tax if you do not move the boat.

Yes it would if you are on a leisure mooring in Kings Marina and have provided a land based address. 

 

Why do you find this so difficult to comprehend?

 

You may not agree with it but it is perfectly legal.

Yes there is . The aggregate council tax may be paid via the marina and recovered from the boater.

Aggregate CT which is based on the official residential moorings

The full council tax may be paid direct to the council. The council may send the bill to the marina who may then deliver it to the boater.

Furthermore the marina is breaking the terms of their planning consent. The council will also probably serve an enforcement notice and the may then apply for planning permissions - which  can be quite expensive.

You know exactly what the wording of the terms in the planning consent is? We're well into lots of grey areas here - it would be a courageous* council to resort to legal measures.

So you should. 

 

Your opinion clearly doesn't sit with that of any one else. Including several councils responsible for the collection of council tax!

Have you read the whole thread?  I think a number of people have already shown that this 'opinion' is shared.  A boat which is the main residence of a person is  liable for Council Tax if it remains in one place for longer than 28 consecutive days.  If you have given a land-based home address then it has to be accepted that it is not your main residence.   If, in fact it is your main residence, but you are pretending its not ............

If the person is registered at an address and that address is paying council tax then they do not owe any council tax. 

 

People are allowed to take extended periods away from a land based address.

Except that the point being made is that the boats in question aren't remaining in one place for more than 28 consecutive days (though there is a certain ambiguity over what exactly is meant by that), hence not liable whatever the status of the resident.
