DAVENTRY ARM AP­PROVED

Canal Boat - - News -

Daventry District Coun­cil has given plan­ning per­mis­sion to the pro­posal for a new canal arm link­ing the town to the Grand Union. This was not an en­tirely sur­pris­ing de­ci­sion given that it was the District Coun­cil’s own plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tion; how­ever the Coun­cil says it means that it can now carry out fur­ther work to ex­plore fund­ing op­tions. Al­though the boat lift which fea­tured in ear­lier ver­sions of the plans has been re­placed by locks, the Coun­cil says that it will still be con­sid­ered in de­tail along­side the plan for locks. The canal plan still faces op­po­si­tion from Daventry Town Coun­cil.
