    • Measuring public benefits • NSS uses a multi-criteria analysis approach to combine a range of indicators, using appropriate weights and scores • Indicators have been developed for maintaining the network, public usage and customer experience and there is evidence of these wider benefits and their value from recent and ongoing studies

    • Measuring public benefits • Canal River Trust uses Network Stewardship Score (NSS) to measure progress against strategic objectives: 1. Maintaining the network 3. Delivering public benefits • Waterways deliver a range of other public benefits (health, environmental, heritage, community and recreational) which are currently omitted not part of the NSS
    • The Canal & River Trust Scope for new thinking data can be aggregated to enable us to understand information on socio economic benefits: • Short-term user benefits where visitor numbers/enjoyment responds to improved condition • Longer-term benefits and risk management: through maintenance in comparison to the benefits of short-term functional investment • Physical health and wellbeing benefits: where the physical exercise generated by the canals can be monetised
