Hi Buzz,
I was just searching the chat history on DBA as we are looking into buying a small canal side property in France and wondered if you did in fact do this in the end? I know 2012 was a long time ago when you posted but just thought I'd ask incase you had any words of wisdom on the subject :) cheers Hugh

When I asked about this on the french fr.rec.bateaux newsgroup it
seemed that it was a real can of worms with no consistent sort of answer
that would be applicable across the whole of France.

The problem (as I understood it) was that there aren't any really hard
and fast rules and the responsible authority for allowing you to moor
long term adjacent to property you own may be down to the local mairie
(i.e. the commune), the d?partement or to VNF (or other water
authority). To make things worse these three possible authorities may
argue amongst themselves.

I think your first approach would need to be to the local mairie.

I reckon the local office of the canal authority - most likely VNF unless canal is operated by another outfit.

We are considering buying a small home on a canal in France and wanted to
know if anyone had information on who would be the contact to get a permit
to moor alongside the property on a semi-permanent basis. sort of a home
away from home.

If we can do this, we are happy for anyone in the DBA to use it when we are
away.

Thank you,
