Canalside Development Plan Document

Representation ID: 72039

Received: 21/12/2020

Respondent: Canal & River Trust

Representation Summary:

Whilst the Canal & River Trust agrees with the statement made in Policy CS5, the policy does not appear to require anything to be done by prospective applicants/developers. It simply states that the canal should be recognised as a potential renewable energy resource.

As written, the policy appears unlikely to achieve any increase in the exploration of or take up of opportunities for using the canal as a renewable energy resource as an integral element of new development proposals adjacent or sufficiently close to the canal. The policy should be strengthened to address this.
