Views sought on plan which will shape future of district’s 40km of canals

Laura Kearns 24th Nov, 2020   0

PUBLIC views are being sought on a development plan which will determine the future of the district’s 40km of canals.

Once approved the plan will inform Warwick District Council decisions on residential development, change of use of sites, environmental and social issues, access and tourism potential.

The waterways include sections of both the Grand Union and Stratford canals.

Views are being sought on the soundness and legality of the plans.

Warwick District Council’s development spokesman John Cooke said: “Our canals are a major heritage asset linking our historic towns with the countryside and strengthening Warwick district’s character, economy and tourism offer. This is an important stage in moving our plans forward, I would therefore encourage anyone with an interest in determining the future of our canal-sides to take a look at this important document.”

Visit before December 21 to view and comment on the plans.
