Mutford Lock costs us £18,000 a year in operating costs in addition to the £25,000 a year we put into the reserve fund for capital costs. The Tolls Review Group considered how we funded this and thought it was most appropriate and fair to recover at least some of the operating costs of the lock from those who benefit from using it.

Their recommendation is to increase the single fair from £13 to £30 while a return would be £45. The Authority is also considering a multi trip discount.
This may seem like a big rise but it only covers part of the operating costs. If we were to try to recover all of them plus the reserves from users a single trip would need to be priced at £93!
