Annual Leisure Craft Conservancy Charges

Peel Ports Medway have made some alterations to the season for the collection of Annual Leisure Craft Conservancy and Yacht Mooring charges. Historically the Annual Leisure Craft Conservancy and Yacht Mooring Charges have been charged for the season 1st April – 31st March yearly.

In the future, as from April 2019, the Annual Leisure Craft Conservancy and Yacht Mooring charges will be charged for the period 1st January – 31st December yearly. Therefore the 2019 charges will be pro-rated to reflect this change and the charge will show a nine months pro-rated charge from 1st April 2019- 31st December 2019.

The new rates also include an increase of 3.3% as per the RPI guidelines. Therefore the 9 months pro-rata charges 1st Apr-31st Dec 2019 are as follows:

  •            Yacht Club Leisure Craft Conservancy charge = £ 52.07 (VAT Inc.)
  •            Yacht Club Yacht Mooring charge = £73.81 (VAT EX)

Going forward the charges shall be levied on the 1st January each year for the season starting 1st January 2020- 31st December 2020.

One thought on “Annual Leisure Craft Conservancy Charges

  1. I don’t pay any fee directly to the ‘Medway’ but probably do in a small way every time I pick up a mooring and are charged – say at Queenborough – so I was wondering what it is the charge is for. Over at the Island YC (Canvey Island) ‘we’ pay the PLA a wadge of money each year for our moorings c£10, 000. For that we essentially get very little, other than our club’s mooring licence …

    Sailing into the Medway on Tuesday (11th) last week I spotted a huge chunk of flotsam tracking down the tide line just after high water on the stretch along the ‘north’ shore of Sheerness Harbour by the power station outfall beacon.
    The ‘chunk’ looked as if it were composed of various bits, some submerged. It was as long as my Finesse 24 – at least 7 metres … and it looked horrible. Possibly a chunk of ‘barge’ that had floated off the saltings after the recent high tides.

    I called up the harbour authority … response was a non-committal thanks.

    We sailed on towards Queenborough and during that time another small vessel reported the same object. It took a further 30 minutes to clear the spit buoy and during that time we neither heard or saw any intervention of a harbour launch.

    I’d expected to see a launch come out of The Camber and intercept the obstruction.

    So, apart from the obvious, what do you pay your money for?
