IWA’s Kent and East Sussex Branch is responsible for an unusually wide variety of waterways under various managements. To maintain contact with events on these waterways we appoint volunteer IWA members who are able to visit them and become involved, where appropriate, with the bodies that manage or are restoring them.

These ‘Waterway Representatives’ become IWAKES Committee members but are under no obligation to attend Committee meetings. They receive Committee correspondence to stay aware of IWA’s more general issues affecting ‘their’ navigation. A Representative’s role is very much what each wishes to make of it. ‘Light touch’ is the rule.

Northfleet Harbour is being restored by the Northfleet Harbour Restoration Trust which is in discussion with the Ebbsfleet developers.

If you would be willing to become the IWAKES Representative for either of these waterways then please contact [email protected].
