Impact Assessment Questionnaire

This questionnaire is being carried out by liveaboard boaters as part of the Equality Impact Assessment of the Local Mooring Strategy proposals for the western Kennet and Avon canal (Bath to Devizes). The purpose of this questionnaire is to find out what impact the proposed mooring restrictions will have on liveaboard boaters – most of whom don’t have moorings.

The purpose of the Equality Impact Assessment is to find out whether the proposals will have a greater and/or worse effect on any particular group of people. The Local Mooring Strategy could have a positive or negative effect on all groups who use the canal, such as liveaboard boaters; holiday boaters; canal-side residents; anglers; walkers etc. Of course, it may not affect some groups.
Completing the questionnaire will be important in helping the Local Mooring Strategy Steering Group to avoid setting mooring restrictions that interfere with our homes and our lives. We need to know directly from you how you will be affected.
THE QUESTIONNAIRE IS ANONYMOUS. You don’t have to give your name , boat name, or any other details. You don’t have to answer all the questions.
All the information provided will be dealt with in strictest confidence. None of the individual questionnaires will be given to British Waterways or other third parties.The information provided will be used to write the liveaboard boaters’ submission to the Equality Impact Assessment.
