To all Ribble Canoe members – Canoe Wales needs your help!
As you may be aware, the Welsh Government has recently published a consultation document on “Taking Forward Wales’ Sustainable Management of Natural Resources” which contains proposals that would dramatically improve canoeing access to inland waterways in Wales (click here), by: extending public access on our inland waterways while requiring responsible public behaviour; enhancing mechanisms for managing access on, to and from our inland waterways; extending public access to our coast; and a series of other measures to change the way that recreational access is administered in Wales.
Canoe Wales and British Canoeing have prepared some initial feedback, proposed responses and concerns. Now they would like to hear our views to help us make the best possible response to the Welsh Government.
Canoe Wales should be grateful if you would let us know your views by completing the online survey at https://goo.gl/forms/d91UCOulgEsFKdlC3 by Friday 11 August.
It is vital that there is a strong response to this consultation from all canoeists who contribute to the Welsh economy through their visits to paddle Wales’ rivers, lakes and coasts to paddle, so please take part in this important consultation!
