British Waterways are carrying out a consultation amongst those with an interest in the canal about traders mooring in Audlem and how such moorings should be controlled.

Concern has been expressed that itinerent traders can damage the business of local shops.

Audlem Parish Council discussed the consultation at its meeting last week and, we believe, is sending a response.

A local boat moorer, however, has suggested the consultation is published so that anyone with an interest or view on the issue may also respond.

The canal is, of course, big business for Audlem. The opening paragraph of the BW document says:

"The local community values the canal as an amenity and source of tourism, while boaters value Audlem as an attractive stopover for shopping and sightseeing.  We estimate that some 8,400 boats pass through Audlem in a typical year, resulting in annual total crew spending in local businesses of some £330,000."
