Will I need to pay Council Tax as a liveaboard?

What utilities are included in the berthing fee?
Water* is included in your berthing fee. Electricity is metered so will be separate from your annual berth fee. You can use your own meter, or they are available to purchase or hire from the Marina Office. There will be a small admin charge to read meters up to 6 times per year. All types of fuel, including gas, will also be billed separately.
*Due to legionella rules, berth holders must use their own hose and connection in order to access the water supply.
