Your say on Kidsgrove Canals


The Harecastle Tunnel, Kidsgrove

The Kidsgrove Town Team would like the community to take part in a survey to improve local Canals.  The Kidsgrove waterfront project will hopefully see improvements to moorings, footpaths, lighting and facilities.  The Town Team is also looking to tap into our local heritage to promote Kidsgrove and the Canal area.

Business Development Officer, Trudi Barnard said: “The Kidsgrove Town Team thinks that the canal is an important asset for the town and wants to see if it can be used as a focus for improving facilities and attracting visitors. A number of project ideas have been proposed – some can be done quite quickly, some will take longer, some will only happen if we can get grant funding and some will be in the hands of other organisations.”

“We would like to know what YOU think about the proposals. What aspects should we concentrate on? Which projects would have the most impact on making you use the canal and towpaths more. So whether you are a resident, narrow boater, dog walker, local business, interested in local heritage or simply want to make your views known, please take a few minutes to complete this questionnaire.”
