Canalside Site Options Appraisal, November 2021

Canal masterplanClient: Canal & River Trust
Planning Solutions Consulting has been commissioned to carry out an options appraisal for a canalside site owned by the Canal & River Trust. A critical element of the assessment is to identify and evaluate options / uses which will allow the site to continue as an operational base for the Trust alongside new uses. The creation of new facilities will support the Trust’s objectives to engage a wider audience, provide more volunteering opportunities, increase the Trust’s brand awareness and bring about stronger financial sustainability for its assets.

The Canal & River Trust was formed in 2012 in the largest ever transfer of public assets to the voluntary sector. The purpose of the Trust is to protect, manage and improve the nation’s canals and river navigations for the millions who enjoy them. The Canal & River Trust look after and bring to life 2,000 miles of waterways and thousands of listed structures, with over 8 million people in England and Wales living within a few minutes’ walk of the canal network. You can find out about the Canal & River Trust here. We have worked on a range of canal related projects.
