Changes to EA Boat Registration Fees
The Environment Agency have announced a 6.4% increase in boat registration fees for all types of boats using their waterways from 1st April 2012. The increase also applies to the British Rowing / Environment Agency block booking agreement.
The fees for 2012 are as follows –
EA based clubs:
- Adult boats £20.50 each
- Junior boats £6.00 each
Non EA based clubs
- Adult boats £12.00 each
- Junior boats £5.00 each
The concession offered in 2011 for powered craft of a nil charge has been withdrawn as this has resulted in substantial loss of revenue to the EA. However, they are offering a special block booking rate for British Rowing registered launches at less than half the standard charge, currently between £78 and £150. As before powered craft must have insurance in place as required by the EA.
- Powered craft £35.00 each
Non-EA based clubs may prefer to purchase temporary registrations direct from the Environment Agency. For more information please see the Environment Agency website: http://www.environment-agency.gov.uk/homeandleisure/recreation/129910.aspx.
Clubs are now able to renew or apply for new EA Boat Registrations for the 1st April 2012 – 31st March 2013 registration period through Club Management.
