EA cuts licence fee rise

Good news for river boaters from the Environment Agency: licences are to rise less than originally expected.

According to the Agency, "In response to the economic downturn and recognition of concerns raised by boating representatives, the Environment Agency has reacted quickly to reduce its previously agreed charging increase by 4%, which will ease pressure on boaters. This reduction, to 7.8%, has been broadly welcomed by customer representatives."

Cotswold Canals pass the final hurdle

We're delighted to report that, earlier this evening, Stroud District Council voted to take on the restoration project for the Cotswold Canals' "phase 1a" (the Stroudwater and Thames & Severn Canal from the Ocean, Stonehouse, to Brimscombe Port).

The restoration was jeopardised when British Waterways pulled out last year. SDC has now agreed to become lead partner and, crucially, to take on the £11.9m grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Congratulations to the Cotswold Canals Trust and all involved.
