We recently told you all about our partnership with Canoe Wales to respond to a Welsh Government consultation, and asking for your feedback. If the proposals outlined were implemented it would represent a massively positive change to access in Wales. You responded to the survey in your droves, and with a very clear message: you support the Welsh Government’s proposals, and agreed strongly with Canoe Wales and British Canoeing’s planned response. Over a thousand paddlers took part – which already helps us send a very powerful and positive message to the Welsh Government.
Based on the feedback we received (from members of Canoe Wales and British Canoeing and from the wider canoeing community) we have now prepared a full response for the Welsh Government. You can read it in full via the download link below. We won’t send the completed response to the Welsh Government until the 30 September deadline, so you still have time to add your support or send us any addition feedback!
However, it’s also vital that the Welsh Government receives as many individual responses as possible. We have prepared an online template for you to use to send your views. Follow the on-screen instructions before midnight on 30 September. This will only take you a few minutes to do, and responses will be sent directly to the Welsh Government.
The more responses they receive, the better – so please do it now, and encourage all your paddling friends to do the same!
