Navigation Committee

The Navigation Committee advises the Authority on matters relating to strategic management of the waterways.

Its role is largely consultative. It considers significant strategic issues only and does not consider detailed operational matters such as individual planning applications, except where they may have strategic or policy importance. Members of the Committee may propose items for discussion at future meetings.
