Also go­ing live re­cently was the Canal & River Trust’s slim­ming-down of se­nior man­age­ment on 4 June.

The heads of the six new re­gions (re­plac­ing 10 for­mer re­gional wa­ter­way units) hav­ing al­ready been ap­pointed (see CB July), four of the six vol­un­teer chairs of the Re­gional Ad­vi­sory Boards are now also in place.

These bod­ies re­place the for­mer wa­ter­ways Part­ner­ships, but with more em­pha­sis on lo­cal well­be­ing.

The heads are Sir Wil­liam Atkin­son (Lon­don & South East), a Trustee of char­i­ties and for­mer gov­ern­ment ad­vi­sor; David Hagg (South West), Chief Ex­ec­u­tive of Stroud Dis­trict Coun­cil; Anil Ma­jithia (East Mid­lands), Chair of Vol­un­tary Ac­tion Le­ices­ter­shire; and Walter Men­zies (North West), for­mer chair of CRT’s Manch­ester, Pen­nine and Pot­ter­ies part­ner­ship.

Mean­while CRT told Canal Boat that 16 ex­ist­ing se­nior man­agers had left, with net re­duc­tion reach­ing “dou­ble fig­ures”.
