Mooring for residential boats is permitted alongside three commons in Cambridge: Jesus Green, Midsummer Common, and Stourbridge Common. Pontoons are allowed at Riverside.
The waiting lists for a residential boat mooring licence are currently closed. We’ll reopen for applications when the estimated wait is less than 18 months.
Renew your licence
We aim to send licence renewal application packs to licence holders in early February of each year. Forms and supporting documents must be returned by the end of the first week of March.
