Stafford Riverway Link
Stafford Riverway Link’s (Community Interest Company) planning application to complete the marina basin, open up a link into the basin from the Staffs & Worcs Canal and construct a bridge over it for walkers and farm traffic was approved in November 2020 by Stafford Borough Council. After the significant progress made on the site in 2019, 2020 was a frustrating year for obvious reasons, so this enabled SRL to end the year on a high note.
The planning approval provides the opportunity for the SRL team to work towards completing the project’s next phase for which the estimated construction costs are expected to be approximately £300,000. Work recommenced on the site almost immediately after the planning approval and the volunteer building team moved things on at an impressive rate. It also brings SRL closer to restoring a part of the town’s historic heritage and it looks forward to the continued support of partners and the people of Stafford.
To help progress the project, a crowdfunding site has been set up at gofundme. For more information about Stafford Riverway Link, visit thier website.
