Environment Agency Moorings Enforcement

District Enforcement Limited, working closely with the Environment Agency, has piloted a hugely successful moorings management solution. Whether your moorings are time limited, completely restricted or unregulated, our flexible solution draws on the unique contractual regulation model utilised in our car parks nationally.

Recognised amongst all other car parking operators for our ethical and robust approach to car parking enforcement, we were approached in 2012 by the Environment Agency to discuss the potential for our services to be adapted to the use of waterways moorings.

Click below to see a short film of our mooring enforcement trial and how the model works to effectively regulate moorings:

From the Environment Agency: "Boaters are welcome to stay at our visitor moorings on the River Thames for up to 24 hours, unless the signs indicate a longer period is permitted. The time limit ensures other boaters are able to enjoy access to the moorings too. We are continuing to work in partnership with District Enforcement to manage the new approach at Oxford and Weybridge to ensure all boats honour a permitted 72-hour limit."
