Winter Works Plans, 2013-14
Take a look at our planned winter stoppages for 2013/14
General approach to planning winter works
Each winter, we take the opportunity of reduced cruising activity to concentrate effort on essential repairs and maintenance to the canals. In many cases, to do the work we have to close the navigation for boats and sometimes towpath walkers.
Public consultation on works planning 2013/14
Over the past three years we have encouraged more active involvement of waterway users in planning the timetable of works by publishing our plans online and inviting feedback on them.
Due to the success of this scheme, we are once again inviting the public to review the provisional plans prepared by our local works planners, and to help us spot opportunities for better coordination to minimise disruption.
The consultation will comprise of two phases and we're now in phase one. We'd like to find out what you think of our stoppage plans. Please submit any feedback via the online forms, which can be found on each individual stoppage notice. We'll then review your comments and publish a revised plan. You will have one further opportunity to comment on our plans before they are finalised by our works planners.
