Mead Lane Mooring Trial, Saltford

The Mead Lane area in Saltford was subject to a temporary mooring trial between December 2016 and October 2018. Informal moorings which have been used by boaters for a number of years are in the Council’s riparian ownership and adjoin the highway (Mead Lane).

During the first year of the trial, 25 feedback forms were returned, 10 were objections to the trial and 15 were in support of the new arrangements.

Monitoring by local residents shows boat numbers and compliance with the mooring trial.
