Simon Salem, CRT’s Marketing Director, is to leave CRT in June next year, it was announced on Friday. The announcement comes only 5 months after CRT publicised plans to restructure its management teams, a re-organisation that appeared to leave Mr Salem with very little to do.

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.
The CRT Trustees decided recently that Nigel Johnson, the Legal and Corporate Services Director, will retire in 2014 because “We have decided that in the longer term the Trust does not require the expertise of a full time Legal Director”. His post will not be replaced. We have also learnt that Head of Boating Sally Ash has had responsibility for moorings shifted away from her, with her team being shrunk to cover policy on boating and mooring only.
BW has claimed that despite discussing “the possibility of introducing greater enforcement powers for BW as part of the new legislation” at its January 2011 Board meeting, it is not seeking extra enforcement powers through its amendment (99A) to the Public Bodies Bill (which will transfer BW to charity status). BW’s Legal Director Nigel Johnson reported back to BW’s May Board meeting that this would not be possible and the appropriate method of seeking change to BW’s enforcement powers was by an Order under the Transport and Works Act 1992 – in other words, a Statutory Instrument. To our knowledge, BW has not used the Transport and Works Act Order process in the past to gain additional powers. The only way to successfully object to a Transport and Works Act Order is to bring a Judicial Review. Public consultation is not obligatory.
