Everywhere you go in London redevelopments are happening making the housing needs for people harder.
The waterways are not excluded from this. Around Central London there is pressure to move out boaters so that property prices are not negatively effected. However, we need more mooring rings.
The whole of the navigable waters of the Bow Back Rivers was taken from us for the Olympics. Now it is only open to some trip boats and with plans to turn it into just 24 hours moorings. This should be open again to all with 14 days moorings.
There has been great reduction of facilities across the waterways. In time where there is more boats, we need more facilities. Places like West London are lacking facilities. We demand more facilities now.
Let’s march on the City and alongside other housing campaigns let our demand be heard
