From time to time the decisions we make can change the way you use the canal and river network. Where this happens we always try to get your input. Where it's a complex decision or has national interest, we will carry out a formal consultation. They don't happen all the time but if there are any underway you'll find them below.
A consultation on towpath use
We're consulting with stakeholders, local authorities, communities and partners in order to put together a National Towpath Use policy.
The aim of the policy is to improve the experience for those people who use the towpaths in England and Wales. We aim to attract more visitors to regularly use and enjoy the waterways and to encourage shared, safe use of the towpaths.
Please read our Sharing Towpaths document.
You can let us know what you think of our proposals by taking our short survey.
The Trust piloted the towpath code in London, developed jointly with the Share the Space Drop your Pace campaign. If you live in or visit London the code may well be familiar to you. Please do take the time to tell us what you think about the code and if and how it could be improved.
Temporary changes to mooring in Paddington Basin and Little Venice Pool.
We are considering a trial of temporary changes to mooring arrangements in Paddinton Basin and the Little Venice Pool to meet a range of different mooring needs during this summer's cruising season.

This consultation will close at 9am on Monday 3 March
