Other Live Issues

BW have yielded to public pressure and revised their plans for the redevelopment of the workshop area at Marsworth.

Marsworth Junction

A NABO representative recently attended a public briefing by BW staff on the latest plans. The revised proposal is to incorporate the old carpenters shop into the development, and retain the boater facilities on the site. These will be improved with a new pump out. The crane will also be retained in situ. It is our current view that this is good compromise, and look forward to further details becoming available. It is our hope that the design of the new housing will be in sympathy with the canalside setting.
