Canal & River Trust appoints Heritage Committee The Canal & River Trust has confirmed appointments to a new committee that will help to protect the heritage of the waterways. The committee of nine people, chaired by former Chairman of English Heritage Sir Neil Cossons, will provide valuable advice and support on heritage and conservation issues. The other committee members are: Alan Baxter, Consulting Engineer to St Paul’s Cathedral and member of the London Advisory Committee of English Heritage; Peter Brown, a member of the Council of the Canal & River Trust (nominated by the Railway & Canal Historical Society); Nigel Crowe, Head of Heritage for the Canal & River Trust; Edward Holland, a Senior Projects Advisor at The Prince's Regeneration Trust; Stephen Hughes, Director of Projects, Royal Commission on the Ancient & Historical Monuments of Wales; Jane Kennedy, narrowboat owner and architect to the cathedrals of Ely, Newcastle and Christ Church, Oxford; Laurence Newman, Chairman of the Museums Partnership of the Canal and River Trust and a member of the Trust’s Council; and John Yates, architect, historic boat specialist, Chairman of the Boat Museum Trust and Vice-chairman of the Boat Museum Society. The committee will play an important role in influencing the heritage policies and procedures of the Trust and shaping innovative approaches to managing the heritage of the waterways. Its members will bring a wide range of individual specialisms that can be called upon when required. The committee will meet for the first time at the end of May, and at least twice yearly from then. Membership of the committee, which is unpaid, will last for a term of three years with an option to continue beyond that should members wish to do so.
