STAINTON RE­PAIR AP­PROVED

Canal Boat - - News -

The plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tion for re­pairs to Stainton Aqueduct on the un­nav­i­ga­ble Lan­caster north­ern reaches, dam­aged in the De­cem­ber 2016 floods, has been ap­proved by South Lake­land District Coun­cil. The Canal & River Trust is still work­ing to raise the £1.5m cost, but CRT’s Stephen Higham said this was “a wel­come step”, as the Trust can now show po­ten­tial fund­ing part­ners a “com­pre­hen­sive and fully ap­proved pro­gramme” of restora­tion.
