If that's legal we could just as well put fishing platforms in every available swim from Staines to the estuary with a sign "Thames Anglers Conservancy - private fishing platform - access for club members only"  Evil or Very Mad

Looks like an illegally moored boat to me.
You could fish from the grass next to it.

They are very pleased with it, see their facebook page https://www.facebook.com/surreycanoeclub

Presumably they don't own the land behind this platform - their club house is upstream of there at Laleham Park sports ground, right?
Just to pinpoint the exact location:
floating boat platforms Captur15
This is located a bit further down on the Middlesex bank adjacent to the M3 (at 1)?  
Or is it the Surrey bank on the downstream side of the M3 (at 2)?

Here is part of the answer:

https://www.gov.uk/apply-for-a-thames-accommodation-licence

"Overview
You need a River Thames accommodation licence to build, change or keep any structure:

on, in or over the river, eg jetty, boom, pontoon, piling
that cuts into the river bank, eg dock, slipway
It is valid until you move or change the structure.

You must display the accommodation licence plate on the structure.

There is an annual fee for the licence, which runs from 29 September each year.

Licences can’t be transferred. You must get a licence if you buy or live in a property with a structure.

Before you build a new structure or change an existing structure, contact the Environment Agency to discuss your plans."


Does the Surrey Canoe pontoon have an EA licence plate displayed? If not, it is defacto unlawful/illegal. Which presumably means it is classed as flotsam/debris, and you are perfectly entitled to fish off it, or, for that matter, cut it loose and take it down the dump.

They would only consult I think if it requires planning, this looks like a temporary structure? Also looks like a nice spot to fish the evenings from  pirat

I would have thought they'd put a notice up at leats asking if there are any substantial objections.

I don't particularly mind and there is plenty of room for all river users, I just don't like public access land going de facto private without anyone being asked.

One exactly the same appeared outside a local canoe club about 2 months ago so maybe the BCU are intending to stick one outside every canoe training centre ,Stick an outboard on the back and you have the most stable fishing boat going floating boat platforms 3927873466
