CRT makes changes to K&A visitor moorings without consultation

Tuesday, December 13th, 2016

CRT’s Short Term Moorings Framework for Change published in March 2015 states that CRT will always consult users before making changes to visitor moorings, and also that any changes should be based on evidence of a need for the change that is being proposed.
