The K&A could be split into two waterway regions with the western end to Froxfield being run from Gloucester and the eastern end managed from London, after CRT announced on 7th December 2017 that it would restructure its management. The K&A Waterway Partnership met CRT Chief Executive Richard Parry earlier this month to try to persuade CRT that running the K&A from two different offices would be disastrous for the canal and the people who live and work on it. Mr Parry heard their case but made no promises.

We are now able to publish the minutes of the meeting between liveaboard boaters, Michelle Donelan MP and CRT Chief Executive Richard Parry. The meeting was minuted by Wiltshire Council’s Peter Dunford, Community Engagement Manager for Bradford on Avon. Also included is a record of the discussions. You can download them here:
Liveaboard boaters and their supporters are invited to join a protest at Caen Hill, opposite CRT’s office in Devizes at 2.00pm on Saturday 6th August 2016 to express our opposition to CRT’s punitive and unlawful enforcement policy against boaters without home moorings. This policy has seen so many liveaboard boaters on the K&A having their licences restricted to 6 months, threatened with losing their homes, being pressured to give up their homes, and boat children’s education and welfare suffering due to the long distances they are being forced to travel to school.
