Yes, where we have availability, you have full use of the marina car parks when you have a berth with us. Please be considerate towards your neighbours and fellow berth holders by keeping the number of vehicles you have on site to a minimum. As part of a residential mooring, we allocate a parking space for one vehicle.
Yes. When you sign up for your mooring, the Waterside and Marina Crew issue you with a key, fob, swipe card or code for you to gain access to the relevant jetties and facilities. You will then be able to visit the marina as and when you like.
Yes. We know that our berth holders and visitors love to bring their four-legged companions along with them to enjoy our waterside locations. We simply ask that you always ensure they’re on a lead, that you pick up after them and you respect your neighbours.
You can make a mooring enquiry directly through your preferred Waterside & Marina, or complete our mooring enquiry form.
However, before you apply, it’s well worth having a chat with the team at the marina you are considering so they can guide you through the process and let you know what’s available and advise on the best mooring options to meet your requirements.
When you live at the marina for more of the time, there is an increased use of marina facilities such as waste services and maintenance costs. Planning permission for residential moorings also come with conditions that cost additional money to implement, including everything from creating car parks to conducting ecological surveys and contributions to local authority through S106 agreements. Additionally, the marina is used as an official postal address, allowing for post handling and the ability to be registered with local community services and is legally your main residency in the UK.
Don’t forget, VAT is also included in your mooring fee. HMRC do allow some exceptions, for example, if the craft is a 'qualifying ship' or a defined houseboat without an engine. We always follow their guidelines and advice.
You need to have a residential mooring if you want to live on your boat at the marina. You cannot live on your boat with a leisure mooring contract. This is because we need planning permission from the local authority to allow people to live on their boat at the marina. Without it, we would be contravening planning law. With the planning permission in place, we can offer residential moorings safely and legitimately.
