Canoe & Boat Permit Application –  River Green Ringland

At the March 2012 Parish Council meeting it was agreed to introduce a Permit scheme on a trial basis which would permit an applicant to apply and subject to agreement of conditions, receive a Permit giving permission to launch/land a ‘boat’ from this area. This will apply to individuals only (not Groups) and shall not be required for children’s inflatables. The permit holder must be present when using the river.

Residents of Ringland may obtain a 12 month Permit at no charge. For those applicants residing outside of the village then a £5 charge applies for the 12 months.
