BaNES invites liveaboards to participate in focus group for waterway users, 5th or 7th September, BathThursday, August 18th, 2016
The BaNES Water Space Partnership (BaNES Council, CRT, Environment Agency and Wessex Water) has commissioned a study looking at the use of the River Avon and the Kennet and Avon Canal within the BaNES area (Hanham to Dundas), and identifying ways in which facilities and services for waterway users can be improved.
As part of this the company working on the project, Atkins, are hosting two focus groups in which representatives of different types of user will be asked to explore the issues they face in making use of the waterways.
BaNES Council has agreed to meet boat dwellers without home moorings to discuss the need for boaters to be directly represented on the Committees tasked with making decisions about the joint BaNES – CRT mooring strategy covering the River Avon and the Kennet and Avon Canal to Limpley Stoke.
