The Ouseburn River Users Group looks at the issues affecting the river, those who use it, and those affected by it, including the operation of the Ouseburn Barrage.

The Group is consulted by the City Council on any proposals which affect operation of the Barrage, navigation and the local environment and amenities, and it may make its own representations and recommendations to the Council.

Dave Cross, Chair of the River Users Group and Trustee of Ouseburn Trust, has written a useful review of the history of the barrage and its operation up to late 2016
