Conflict between mooring and fishing area licences.

Comment 31st August 2010

Crown Estates licence areas for moorings and another department (DEFRA?) licence areas for fishing.  It appears there is no consultation between departments and licences are granted for different use of the same area of sea bed and conflict of use occurs.  This leads to bad feeling and potentially dangerous situations.

Why does this matter?

1. Safety issues which are potentially life threatening.  Lack of manouverability of badly signed fishing vessels in a moorings area and other boats moving among the moorings.

2. Potential damage to fishing gear and/or mooring tackle.

3. Divisive impact on local community.
