									British Waterways Bylaw Meeting 04 March 2010

Present:        John Bayliss, Sally Ash, Nigel Hamilton, Caroline Killeavy, Nigel Johnson

Action Required
     Define ‘hire boats’ in glossary.

       4. Greater definition of ‘powered vessel’ to ensure boaters can’t have any powered tug pushing in powered
        and get round licensing conditions – more suitable to licence conditions?

       4. Explain the term “relevant consent” in explanatory notes when going to consultation.

       4. Some locks are both user operated and BW operated – may need to accommodate dual use.

       4. Hand pushed trolleys (boaters) insert (but not shopping trolleys).

       9. Issue with “every respect watertight”. Could make almost all vessels illegal?

       10. ? Consider definition of word ‘CREW’ at front of glossary? Dictionary definition may do this.

       11. Fendering paragraph needs some more thought – Add explanatory notes to consultation on why this has
        been included.

       15. Reference to BSS to be included?

       18. (31.) Include some explanation on measurement used for speed limits. Might head off lots of comments
        in consultation.

       18. 3 (c). To look again at this – if can be bought in line with Severn +Trent.

       16. (i) Breaking Wash – include in explanatory notes.

       20. Tony Stammers considering traffic light signals. Reconsider wording (standard). Consider on wording
        which recognises a general requirement to obey signal lights – more generic.

       21. Consider taking whole thing out – doesn’t add anything to due care and attention. Consider going
        through abandoned byelaws in this area to see if there are relevant guidance to be included in boaters guide –
        or mention port to port.

       22. (2) - reword “seamanship”, replace with boatmanship? Collregs – need to be consistent on how this is
        spelt.

       23. (1) (i) Should include boat registration number on the boat.

       25. Insert number in PDF file.

       25. Consider whether this could be extended to include damage to third party property? Any property in a
        waterway? Put 23 and 25 together (24 after) – makes sense in shuffling order.

       30. Tunnels – check with Tony Stammers to reward. Check our position on broad beam vessels before
        consultation.

       31. Intoxicated persons – include MCA reference in explanatory notes.

       33. Remove ‘sound signals’ from Lights sections. Collregs or Colregs? → Somewhere need to define what
        makes a noise? Check that colregs says this.

       37. Consider defining size of plates. – reinstate “20 yards” comment on visibility from existing byelaws.

       42. Reconsider if this detailed definition of lock operation is needed at all. Keep (c) and (e) – some law
        regarding water restrictions. Offence is waster water.

       43. Unnecessary.
       44. Unnecessary.

                                            c:\docstoc\working\pdf\f3ea681e-6f92-4e4e-af77-71db12617100.doc, page 1 of 2, 27/03/2013
   45 Much discussion on who should be responsible for closing the bridge? Need to remove 200 metre clause
    or add boater behind it is responsible for closing it. Review wording.

   48. (1) (b) take out – too prescriptive.

   52. Reinsert comment about Running/Mooring the boat in gear.

   53. Relook at this – unnecessary – included in 26 (1).

   54./56. – comment on bridleway status in consultation document.

   55. Comments – cross reference Crane Byelaw.

   58. Should go before 54.

   59. (c) – remove in any area set aside by BW for the purpose.

   60. (c) take out.

   61. Consolidate with 58.

   61. Towing rather than hauling.

   63. Take out whole of (2).

   64. Recognition that locks need to be operated.

   65. (b) reword as it doesn’t make sense.

   73. (1) - “relevant operation” seems to float and it doesn’t make sense. Swap (2) and (1) in order.

   75. Comment in consultation notes about angling matches and consent in licenses.

   76. Add word “voluntarily”. “except in emergency”.

   77. Reverse order prohibition first and definition second. Not clear whether its land or water. b) Kite towing
    rather than kiting.

   79. (2) take out.

   79. Put c before a.

   81. Add some wording which indicates boater priority where navigation structures exist/ intended for
    navigational use.

   82. Take out.

   83. Consultation notes should outline what this is.

   84. Remove restriction to “coursing an injury”. Add something which addresses refuse collection
    locations/types of fly tipping – (white goods, batteries).

   85. (1) Insert reference to BSS certificate in consultation notes.

   86. Consolidate into fly tipping (73).

   87 (e) Change “interfere” to damage.

   92 (1) and (2) seem contradictory. Remove definition to the “Ferry Boat” as no longer needed. Consider to
    incorporate “don’t run generators overnight” type Byelaws.
