Transfer of Environment Agency navigations

Transfer of Environment Agency navigations

 We are disappointed that Defra has indicated that it is not minded to proceed with the transfer of the river navigations currently managed by the Environment Agency to the Canal & River Trust. 

 Having worked positively and collaboratively with the EA over the past 18 months or so to put forward a proposal, we remain convinced that the transfer would be in the wider public interest. It would deliver the real essence of value for taxpayers, and benefits for the users of these waterways whilst securing the long-term future of the navigations themselves.

 We will of course continue to cooperate actively with the EA in the running of our respective navigations to ensure the best possible experience for all river and canal users.

 ENDS

 The Canal & River Trust is the guardian of 2,000 miles of historic waterways across England and Wales, caring for the nation’s third largest collection of listed structures, as well as museums, archives, and hundreds of important wildlife sites.  We believe that living waterways transform places and enrich lives and our role is to make sure there is always a place on your doorstep where you can escape the pressures of everyday life, stretch your legs and simply feel closer to nature

By all means do cooperate with the EA - but leave it at that. Those Thames boaters who care don't want CRT anywhere near the River if current canal situations (many reported here) are likely to be replicated.

Hmm - I didn't suspect support - even from a different waterway!

Thanks
