Canal Boat - - News -

Plans for the Bas­ingstoke Canal in Wok­ing in­clude a boat moor­ing basin sur­rounded by restau­rants and bars, linked to the canal’s tow­path by a new sus­pen­sion style foot­bridge, cre­at­ing a ‘hon­ey­pot site’ at­tract­ing vis­i­tors and de­vel­op­ers. The ideas were put for­ward by Coun­cil Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Ray Mor­gan, amid ad­mis­sions of con­cerns about the canal, which is not part of the Canal & River Trust sys­tem and re­lies on lo­cal au­thor­ity sup­port. De­spite CRT and Sur­rey Coun­cil hav­ing been un­able to agree fi­nan­cial terms for a trans­fer, Mr Mor­gan still be­lieves that “the most likely so­lu­tion is for the canal to be taken over by the Canal and River Trust”.
