A member of the Kennet and Avon Local Waterway Partnership told a liveaboard boater to “shut up” during the Partnership’s Annual Public Meeting on 12th November. Alan Aldous, an IWA member who sits on the Partnership because of his experience as a riparian landowner, later refused to apologise.

What to do if CRT tell you your boat has not been sighted in enough “neighbourhoods” in three monthsWednesday, September 24th, 2014
This month, many boaters received a letter from CRT alleging that their boat was sighted in less than the “required” number of “neighbourhoods” between Bath and Foxhangers during the three months from June to August 2014. These letters amount to harassment. The K&A Interim 12-month Local Plan was proposed and consulted on as a voluntary agreement, and therefore CRT cannot now state that boaters are “required” to travel through a specific number of “neighbourhoods”. One of the letters is pictured below.
Nigel Johnson, CRT’s legal and corporate services director will retire at the end of 2013 according to a CRT press release. This is surprising, because it was announced last year in a review of directors’ pay and roles that he would retire at the end of 2014. Mr Johnson was responsible for CRT spending around £250,000 on BW/ CRT’s failed six-year court battle with Nigel Moore over a section 8 order in Brentford.
Appparently Sally Ash is less than happy with the lovely film Boater’s Voices, made by Wiltshire Council and, for me at least, evidence that there may be summer again.
She has written to Wiltshire Council complaining that CRT’s voice was not heard, the strident and piercing voice that can be heard in any of Ms Ash’s official outpourings, and is absent from this film.
