Canal Boat - - News -

The Canal & River Trust has re­sponded to lo­cal news re­ports of dis­agree­ments be­tween com­pet­i­tive row­ers and other users on the River Lee in east Lon­don, and the sug­ges­tion that the Trust was plan­ning to limit moor­ing space in or­der to main­tain a 60ft clear chan­nel be­tween Old Ford and Tot­ten­ham. CRT’s Sor­war Ahmed said that the Trust had been “in di­a­logue with the Na­tional Bargee Trav­ellers As­so­ci­a­tion Lon­don and the Lea Row­ing Club as part of de­vel­op­ing a Lon­don moor­ing strat­egy”, that the plans re­ferred to were “ini­tial pro­pos­als for dis­cus­sion” rather than for­mal pro­pos­als, that they “cer­tainly do not ad­vo­cate a 60ft chan­nel be­tween Old Ford and Tot­ten­ham”, and there would be an op­por­tu­nity to com­ment on CRT’s pro­pos­als when pub­lished as part of the draft strat­egy later this sum­mer.
