I know that this is a touchy subject, but why shouldn't a council charge for use of a council owned slipway?

Quote from Mr Mike Mothersole (Anglesey Council Maritime Officer)

"These charges will help the Council to police the slipways, beaches and sea. Making it safer for both beach and boat users. The monies raised from these charges will put people on to the slipways, who can then police the area and enforce Council Bylaws.
Registration allows us to to know who is in the water and also ensure that the people using the slipways are competent Sailors". Said Mr Mothersole. (Anglesey Mail 10th March 2004).

Well if what Aging Youth said is correct in that the foreshore belongs to the public, that means they've been building on my property without my permission.

And where is JK gonna take cover? Even if he hid in Canary Wharf his head would stick out of the top.

Mr Mike Mothersole

If this goes ahead I suspect Mr "Mothersole" will be in for some ribald comments.

Just a thought with a bit of devils advocate:

Beaches are as said previously are common land, I'm NOT total sure on this but bow to better knowledge.

Are the owners of (public) slipways not allowed to charge for the use of them to cover the creation and maintaince costs?
Be they crown estate, local councils (Which I thought was owned by the people),
An unmaintained slip soon becomes interesting verging on dangerous after a while.
You could argue that the local taxes cover this, but you could also argue that the users should pay.
This leads into the how do you inforce it, launching tickets? car park charges?

Whats the view of the forum
edited added NOT - twit read posts twice

Who ownes the shore?

I was always led to believe that the shoreline between High and low water mark was "Crown" Property. Any land above the high water mark is owned by the land adjacent to it.
Any legal eagles out there?
