MKDONS training ground statement

The trustees of Buckingham Canal Society note the recent announcement from MKDONS regarding the proposed training ground development with the inclusion of the natural route of the Old Stratford Cut restored within the illustrative plan.

As this is a screening enquiry to the district council, we await the final planning application before making any further comment but are pleased to see the waterway has been positively considered within the proposal at this stage. The BCS constitution sets out our aims to restore the canal as a navigable waterway between Buckingham and Cosgrove and as such we welcome all and any opportunities to work with local landowners to further this objective.
