The Waterways PSPO consultation is being conducted in two phases, one with key stakeholders and the second as a public consultation. This format is the result of revisions following recommendations of the City Executive Board at the meeting on March 17th. The consultation brief outlines the method by which the consultation will be carried out and the officers and Councillor responsible.
Phase one consists of consulting with key stakeholders, including boater groups, who were not consulted in the development of the draft PSPO. PSPnO and the NBTA were named key stakeholders in the consultation brief.
