We have a number of partners that we work with to restore and regenerate the un-navigable parts of the canal. We also work with canal based businesses to support and promote the navigable parts of the canal from a commercial and leisure aspect.
The primary partnership for the regeneration of the un-navigable canal is through the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canals Regeneration Partnership Group.
Monmouthshire and Brecon Canals Regeneration Partnership Group
The Monmouthshire, Brecon and Abergavenny Canals Trust was an enthusiastic and active founder member of the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canals Regeneration Partnership Group which was founded in 1996. Other founder members included Newport County Council and the then British Waterways Board (BWB). The work of the BWB has been taken over by the Canal & River Trust since 2012.
The partners are working together to achieve the sustainable restoration of the southern un-navigable section of the canal and support CRT in the Improvement and maintenance of the navigable section of canal.
