INVOICE “small print” for 2023 – April 2024 Licenses
- A maximum (depending on available space) of one dinghy, one racked craft, one Tender to a named Lympstone summer-moored vessel, is allowed per household from now on.
- As a result of above, please check your invoice when it comes, that the correct choice of vessel has been assumed, if you had more than one last year.
- Priority for hardstanding space over winter is given to Lympstone summer moored vessels which are craned, with least priority to the latest additions to DIY-trailered licensees. Such trailered vessels may not come ashore before craning completed.
- You are expected to respond to ‘Harbour Board Directions’ emails as instructed promptly, unless you have previously informed us of being incommunicado for a period.
- Any operation carried out on the Association’s property is at the operator’s risk, with no liability to LFHA. This includes the presence of any private property (boats) in LFHA jurisdiction.
