We are seeking to engage a wide and varied audience by implementing continual improvements through the introduction of multi user routes, water-borne transport, canal side developments, and engaging local communities bordering the route. The ability to reinstate a sustainable canal corridor as a green recreational amenity is the cornerstone to bringing these waters back to navigation.
Funding for these objectives will be derived from a variety of sources dependent on the nature of projects within the restoration. Funding will be consist of a mixture of:
- Individual subscriptions
- Grants for Lottery and other organizations
- Commercial capital, where returns from the development are clear and sufficient and
- Loan capital
- The use of our strong membership base in undertaking physical, administrative and managerial work
The timeframe for delivery is now dependent on raising finance following the successful achievement of Outline Planning Permission for the whole canal restoration in 2011 and the completion of many assessments and surveys of engineering requirements.
