The MBBCS Additional Comments on Planning
Application 23/82372/FUL (Upper Wharf Street)

Issued 27th March, 2024

Save Salford's Heritage Towpath!

However we remain perplexed by the applicant's desire to lay a footpath along where the water would be in any restored canal. This is not sustainable development. It also contravenes Salford's Local Plan and Policy HE6.

Similarly the applicant's plan to unearth and destroy the heritage towpath that runs between the canal and the railway wall is wanton destruction of an historical artifact first laid down in 1797, and revised in 1894.
