The first meeting of our project partners was held at British Waterways London Office, Sheridan Square, Paddington. Each partner introduced their Organisation, explaining their structure and objectives. They briefly outlined the activities they would be carrying out in their own partner areas and how these fitted in to the project overall.
Chris Bailey from British Waterways showed a Powerpoint presentation highlighting the issues relating to governance of the project. Discussions and a Q&A session followed this and Chris and Glen Millar (BW) answered partners detailed questions.
No formal site visit was held though partners were shown the very popular canal junction at Little Venice and saw the 'Business Boats' (floating offices) and wider regeneration around the Grand Union Canal in Paddington.
