She says that Kayakers and Canoeist need to agree access with land owners, she does not say that navigation needs to be agreed with land owners. I interpret her remarks as referring to access to the water as in the same paragraph she clearly confirms her view that navigation is unregulated.
My personal view is that no one will force a court case in the foreseeable future as both sides have too much to lose, I think while we are in this state of limbo we should concentrate on securing as much access to the water as we can in addition to preparing for a court case so as not to be caught off guard.
