Please take note of the fact that there has been a postponement of the deadline for submission of responses to this consultation – it will now be 30 September.
This has been set out in the letter below from Lesley Griffiths AM.
“Lesley Griffiths AC/AM
In respect of the Sustainable Management of Natural Resources Consultation
There has been a great deal of interest in the Taking Forward Wales’ Sustainable Management of Natural Resources Consultation, launched on the 21 June. It is a real strength in Wales to have such engaged stakeholders providing us with their input and experience to help identify opportunities for Wales.
We have listened to our stakeholders and as such have extended the consultation period until the 30 September.
The written consultation is undertaken in parallel with active engagement with stakeholders both collectively through our roundtable group, and with individual sectors.
The consultation provides an opportunity for stakeholders across Wales to have a say on any legislation, which may be needed to address EU exit and whilst we are extending the consultation period, we would encourage early responses on these areas to help identify potential opportunities as early as possible.
This Consultation provides us with a further opportunity to work together to identify potential opportunities for Wales.”
I wish to thank those who have responded to the consultation and very much and welcome further responses.
In spite of this postponement, The CFF urges you to respond as soon as you can. As you will see from the post above we have provided some suggested responses to the main questions in the consultation. Please feel free to use these as you wish, send in your response soonest and let us make certain that the voice of anglers is heard clearly in the context of this consultation.

The Welsh Assembly Government has recently launched a consultation entitled “Taking Forward Wales’ Sustainable Management of Natural Resources” which includes far reaching implications for those who live, work and use our countryside, including a proposal to amend or revoke the Countryside Rights of Way Act 2000, to provide access to canoes, rafts or even paddleboards on any non-tidal water, rivers or inland waters anywhere, overriding restrictions under existing law.
