Our waterways are home to many people who live on their boats. Planning policies can support those living afloat at fixed locations.
The Association of Inland Navigation Authorities Advisory Document – the residential use of inland waterways provides some useful background on living afloat. For more information on moorings please refer to our mooring pages.
