Daventry Town Council Voices the Views of Daventry Residents - 'Say No to the Canal Arm'

At a special meeting held on Tuesday 12th October, Daventry Town Council considered amendments to planning application11/0052/FULWND for a new canal arm and associated works linking the Grand Union Canal and Daventry Town Centre.

Members voted unanimously against the amendments but also took the opportunity to reiterate their original formal objection to the canal arm and raise further concerns in relation to the lack of a business plan, links with proposed developments and ongoing costs, that may be borne by residents of both Daventry Town and Daventry District for the long term maintenance and sustainability of a public waterway.
