SE VISITOR MOORINGS - NABO RESPONSE TO THE CANAL AND RIVER TRUST (CRT) REPORT ON THE PUBLIC CONSULTATIONS OF SPRING 2013
CRT has confirmed that it was taken aback by the strength of boaters opinions: for example 700+ signed a spontaneous online petition spread by word of mouth against the proposals (not the principle of consulting as implied in the CRT report). Some 360 boaters wrote feedback in response to the CRT email, of which at least 50% was negative. In addition both NABO and RBOA, representing many thousands of members wrote detailed feedback, again rejecting specific aspects of the proposal. CRT decided to focus on the minority that gave positive feedback as the green light to proceed.
