‘FLOAT­ING PARK’ WOR­RIES

Canal Boat - - News -

Ap­proval by Westminster Coun­cli of plans for a pub­lic ‘float­ing park’ has led to con­cern by the In­land Wa­ter­ways As­so­ci­a­tion that some of the cap­i­tal’s lim­ited moor­ing space is be­ing lost. The As­so­ci­a­tion has also crit­i­cised the lack of con­sul­ta­tion on the plans for float­ing lawns, cherry trees and per­gola. How­ever the de­vel­op­ers say there will be space for float­ing traders, and the Canal & River Trust pointed out to Canal Boat that this part of the basin is on a long lease to a prop­erty com­pany and is cur­rently com­pletely un­used.
