Chelsea Houseboat Owners Told To Weigh Anchor

Recommended Posts

Oh dear. At one time living on the Thames was a way of living relatively cheap in London (not that it was particularly cheap)

http://www.standard....ts-9225380.html

Houseboat owners at one of London’s most exclusive waterside addresses have been given their sailing orders to make way for the mega-yachts of Russian oligarchs, it was claimed today.

The owners of seven houseboats moored at Cadogan Pier in Chelsea fear they are being cut adrift after developers gave them four weeks’ notice.

The pier on Chelsea Embankmentjust yards from Albert Bridge was used by the Queen to board the Spirit of Chartwell for the 1,000 boat Diamond Jubilee pageant.

Houseboat owners tried to buy the pier in December last year, but it has now been taken over by property developers Albyns.

Now Russian oligarchs want to moor their luxury yachts there. Not sure how big a yacht you can get that far up the tidal Thames.

Maybe a 'Tower Bridge' tax is required. £1M every time its raised.
