Mooring consultations

Published: Monday, 26 April 2010

BRITISH Waterways'  consultation on moorings policy received 180 responses, and a team of 11 volunteers from across the network have analysed the responses and their findings are now being discussed with the national boating organisations.

A report summarising the feedback will be published by the end of April although individual responses (with personal information removed) are already available to view via the BW website, with a spokesman reporting:

"Because there was a clear majority consensus supporting the concept of local mooring strategies, BW would like to move ahead with the first pilot project on the western end of the Kennet & Avon Canal. Working with the national boating organisations, BW proposes establishing a representative steering group to proceed with the development of this pilot moorings strategy with a view to consulting on and then implementing the strategy in early winter 2010."
