Broads Authority's on-line incentive to help ease the process of toll payments
Broads boat owners who are already registered to use
the Broads will now be able to renew their tolls online.
This aim of this new incentive is to make the process
as easy as possible by reducing the administration time. However, the Broads
Authority say that the facility is not yet available to owners whose boats are
not already registered for Broads use. Although they have indicated this
facility will be available for newcomers in the future, they were unable to
provide us with an idea of when it would become active.
For those eligible to sign up, all you need to do is
go to https://tolls.broads-authority.gov.uk
and register for the toll. You will then be sent a pin number, which gives
access to the site. After signing a third party insurance declaration, and
provided Boat Safety Certificates are up to date, a new toll can be purchased.
Owners will also be able to update their mooring location and order tide tables
Ouse and Cam boaters, on the other hand are facing difficult times with changes and increases to the licence system. Keep an eye out for the April issue of MBM which reports on the concerns and how the authorities behind the changes face losing river users altogether. To subscribe click here.
