Managing Boats on London’s Busy Waterways – Matthew Symonds, National Boating Manager (Leisure Boating), Canal & River Trust
With the significant increase in the number of boats on London’s waterways various issues are needing to be managed. The Canal & River Trust is engaging with boaters and other stakeholders at present asking such questions as:
How can we manage the number of boats in the capital and surrounding waterways in terms of moorings and other facilities?
How can we look after the waterways which are part of our city’s heritage to ensure they are cared for sustainably in the future?
How can we make sure with the increased usage of the waterways for a wide range of users these remain an enjoyable experience for all?
Whether you live, work or play on London’s waterways, have an interest in our heritage, in nature , walking, cycling, getting kids on the water or anything else your views matter. Matthew has very kindly agreed to speak at this webinar and answer people’s questions and concerns. We hope a wide range of people will join in this evening to contribute your views to this important subject before the current engagement concludes on 8th January.
