Petition - Regarding Cam Floating Boat


A petition has been received containing over 50 valid signatures stating the following:


We the undersigned petition the council Stop enforcement action against the Floating Cam Bar Ltd. and allow the company to continue trading from the River at Jesus Green.


The Floating Cam Bar, locally known as the 'Pimm's Punt' has been working along the River Cam for nearly ten years. Every year, we provide novelty, entertainment and refreshment to thousands of locals and visitors alike. Sadly, we are now being threatened with legal action from the council for trading.


We very nearly went out of business during the Pandemic. However, were lucky to be saved by a government 'bounce back loan'. We set ourselves to work last year applying for a new premises license which would allow us to serve you on land. Cambridge City Council granted us the license, and so we then designed and built a brand new boat, which could bring some of our summer magic to people walking along the banks of the River. Finally, we applied to the Cam Conservators for a new river vending license for a boat which sells to the banks. We were really delighted when this too was granted.


We launched the new boat on the first weekend out of lockdown 2021, and we were amazed by the response from locals, which was overwhelmingly positive.


Unfortunately, we were visited almost immediately by Cambridge City Council Enforcement, to demand we immediately stop trading. We have tried to engage several times with the council, but our emails and calls have gone unanswered.


Yesterday enforcement visited during trading hours to repeat the demand and inform us that legal action was commencing.


Please sign our petition to ask Cambridge City Council to reconsider its position and allow us to continue trading from the River at Jesus Green.



The petition organiser will be given 5 minutes to present the petition at the meeting and the petition will then be discussed by Councillors for a maximum of 15 minutes.
