In October, CRT published its policy to promote equality for people with protected characteristics under the Equality Act 2010 and its approach to making reasonable adjustments to remove disadvantages for disabled people in accessing and using its waterways. The policy ensures that CRT:
§Provides equality, fairness and respect concerning all aspects of its customer service delivery;
§Does not unlawfully discriminate on the grounds of the Act’s protected characteristics of age, disability, gender reassignment, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, gender and sexual orientation;
§Opposes and avoids all forms of unlawful discrimination.
We are very sorry to report that after a long period of illness, Trevor (known to his close friends as “Trig”) passed away peacefully on Wednesday 4th October 2017, aged 65 years. Trevor was an active member of NABO since 1998. Trevor’s gift to NABO was a fine mind.
We’d firstly like to thank those who responded to our recent consultation on our proposed charge increase for 2018/19. We had a reasonable number of responses from a good cross section of representatives from the four stakeholder groups.
Many of you gave very detailed and considered responses which we very much value. We have now reviewed them thoroughly and taken them into account when making our decision on the charges for 2018/19.
