We love and care for your canals and rivers, because everyone deserves a place to escape.

National consultations

From time to time we have to make major decisions about how we look after our canals and rivers.

While we’re the experts and have highly qualified teams working for the Canal & River Trust, we also want to get your perspective on a range of subjects.

Although we are not bound by them, whenever we do publish formal national consultations we will often try to follow the Government’s Consultation Principles.

However, sometimes we want your feedback on a more local and informal level. You can check if there are any consultations happening in your area by visiting our regional pages.


There are no national consultations taking place at the moment.
