The Local Mooring Strategy for the western K&A has been finalised and sent to the CRT Navigation Advisory Committee for approval. Here we publish the strategy for the first time:
The next meeting of the K&A boaters action group will be on Monday 8th April at 7.30pm in Sells Green.
Councillor Fleur de Rhé-Philipe, Chair of the Kennet and Avon Local Waterway Partnership, resigned this week. Tamsin Phipps, who represents canoeists on the Partnership, is now acting as the temporary Chair. The Partnership is about to release its review of the K&A local mooring strategy proposals.
The K&A Local Waterways Partnership Moorings Sub-Group has held two meetings so far, on 26th October and 19th November. It is due to carry out a final review of the proposed mooring plan before putting it out to consultation to the organisations and communities represented in the Sub-Group.
When making arrangements for a meeting between BaNES Council and Sally Ash and Damian Kemp of BW in December 2011, one of the Council’s housing officers said in an email that “We .. have on-going concerns regarding their appreciation of the potential impact of the proposed moorings strategy (ie homelessness, access to education/services etc).”
The K and A Local Waterway Partnership (LWP) is to hold the first meeting of its Moorings Sub-Group on 26th October, it was announced yesterday.
CRT’s plans for the consultation on the K and A Local Mooring Strategy have changed again. A sub-group of the Local Waterway Partnership (formerly the Partnership Board) will review the mooring strategy and will decide what consultation is required. CRT claims this sub-group will be “independent”. At the final meeting of the Local Mooring Strategy Steering Group in October 2011 it was agreed that the Local Waterway Partnership would review the mooring strategy. BW then unilaterally disbanded the Local Mooring Strategy Steering Group before its work was complete. However, at that point BW still intended to carry out a full public consultation.
