Audlem Moorings British Waterways have opened a consultation about traders overstaying at Audlem. NABO has been invited to respond, so we invite members to add any comments below before January 21st 2012 so that NABO Council can put a response together.

BW posted 2 consultations on its website about the boom and lock landing at Isis Lock, where the Oxford Canal meets the River Thames. After consulting with members, we have sent this response:

"Because the boom and lock landing pontoon installations are inextricably linked, we are sending the same reply to both consultations, as we believe they should be just one consultation. We have also referred to the automated red light warning system and Duke's Cut signs.

NABO has responded to DEFRA's second consultation on the NWC.
