The meeting at the Guildhall this morning went well. In light of the responses to the consultation carried out last month, the Conservators have decided to opt for 'none of the above' and to review the decision next January. They agreed that the financial situation although serious was not urgent, and resolved to find new ways to increase revenue. They invite suggestions on this front.
In the interim, they plan to carry out a wider consultation of all licence payers (motor boats and unpowered boats) with the document going out to river users in September hopefully.
Camboaters welcomed the proposal and offered to help carry out the survey as much as possible.
At the meeting, the Conservators also voted to try and remove Mr. ASBO and family from the river as a one-off case for his own safety.
