Affordable mooring plans scuppered

PLANS to provide “affordable” moorings for boat-owners have been blown out of the water – by problems likely to occur on land.

Council chiefs have rejected an application to build a small marina between Eling Great Marsh and Eling Wharf amid fears that sailors parking in nearby roads would clog the streets.

The Southampton -based Eling Marsh Yacht Association had applied for planning permission to install 30 moorings.

But the lack of parking resulted in the proposal being sunk at a meeting of New Forest District Council’s planning and development control committee.

Councillor Maureen Holding said: “The area looks very industrial and it would be nice to have a marina there. But the problem that worries me is the parking – the streets would fill up with parked vehicles.

“If that could be solved, everything else would fall into place.”

The applicants said the scheme would benefit boat owners who needed affordable moorings, but the proposal was rejected by 14 votes to two.

Don't not trust Eling Marsh Yacht Association, They have been slowly taking over old timber yard quays area, pushing local out, Registered fishermen and people who was there before the Yacht club moved in, Many who use this area now to moor there boats there have yacht closer to where they live, this was once a free mooring basing till the Yacht club and the Docks Board moved in and took over the area.

Southy, not everything is a battle; sometimes it's simply progress and re-generation. Where's the value in empty sheds and units?
I'm sure with a little local interest and investment that particular area could become somewhere people want to visit. I recall there being problems in that area that stemmed from the decaying yards and failing industry, pollution of the shore line was it ?
Address the car parking issues and get it built.

Ted they are not on about the the old burt bolton timber sheds (apart from they are all in use), They are on about the mooring basin from the mill bridge to the end of the old timber yard quay the quay near the pub (the concrete quay).
The pollution your on about has been there since the fire in the Fison storage shed, every one who was a reg at eling knew about that seepage and where it came from and why, its slowly diluting over the years.

For one, the administrative costs. There. A reason not to do it. It might not be the most wonderful reason, but until it's countered by an actual reason from the opposing angle, it wins the argument by default. Unless there's an actual reason to make the other side of the water part of Southampton, cost is as good a reason as any not to bother.

That's not a accurate account with EMYA, those Moorings were taken over by Eling Sailing Club and Totton & Eling Council and EMYA had only applied for 30 Moorings by Eling Great Marsh and NOT a Marina as reported.

I hope, now that there are concerns about Parking at Eling parking Restrictions will be put on users at Eling Sailing Club,Jet Skiers and Customers at the Anchor Pub!.

What 'vast improvements' that have been made in Southampton over the last half-century would make anyone on the Western side of Southampton Water envious?

A year after the Red Arrows pilot lost his life at the Bournemouth Airshow, a monument was erected to his memory at Bournemouth.

It is now 67 years (R) 67 years since the end of WWII and leaders of all political persuasion in Southampton are still TALKING ABOUT a monument to the Spitfire.

You want to be accurate Eling% Totton council as controll on the beach, and a small part of the concrete quay, the yacht club as control of the rest of the quay wall right up to the mill and in front of the mill.
I can go back a very long time when Bob Tanner was still alive, when you use to get 4-5 lb Sea Trout running up the river Rum, when the club only had control in front of the mill, and the rest was free moorings, I watch the yacht club slowly creep up the concrete quay, i remeber the Dock board moving in and taking over the middle mud moorings.
What is not needed is another Yacht club in the area, there are way to many here in the Southampton area.

the city boundry will move north-east and east.
As you have already stated, the Western boundary will remain the River Test, but my betting is that the M27 will remain the NorthEast boundary, with Eastleigh Airport remaining in Eastleigh, and after the money that its council has invested in it, the cricket ground will also remain under Eastleigh's control.
