Getting TWO


As many of you will know, in order to restore the canal a new section will need to be built to mitigate that which has been lost to housing development. From the feasibility study, we have a conceptual route from the old arm at Cosgrove to come down to alongside the River Ouse and under the A5 westwards, joining back to the original canal west of Deanshanger.¬†This “new channel” requires a special kind of planning permission known as a transportation and works act order (TWO)

Following on from our recent lunch reception held at the Houses of Parliament, we now have a group working on this in partnership with CRT and the IWA along with government representation. We hope to be able to potential deliver a planning solution that covers multiple restoration projects and not just BCS.

We are however looking for a few folk to work on background tasks including archive research/analysis to support this.
So if you would like to get involved, pelase contact or
