Consultation Responses

The NBTA aims to respond to all consultations by navigation and other authorities on matters that affect Bargee Travellers. This page contains consultation responses and evidence to Parliament submitted by the NBTA. These are listed in alphabetical order of the consulting organisation.

Local NBTA branches such as NBTA London and NBTA River Cam and other local groups that represent Bargee Travellers also respond to consultations on local matters that affect them.

If you hear of a national or local consultation that you think the NBTA should respond to, please contact us.
