Sharpness Docks owner seeks views on its future

THE ORGANISATION that owns Sharpness Docks is seeking your views on how it should be run in the future.
The Canal and River Trust’s South Wales and Severn Waterway Partnership has launched its draft plan for improving canals, rivers and docks in the region for the next decade.
The partnership wants community groups, councils, schools, and businesses to give their thoughts no how to ensure a bright future for Gloucestershire’s historic waterways.
The prospectus looks at how the waterways can contribute to all areas of day-to-day life throughout Gloucestershire, as well as Worcestershire and South Wales, from attracting jobs and tourism, promoting healthy lifestyles, to improving accessibility and increasing educational opportunities.
The group’s annual meeting is on Wednesday, October 23 at Sixways Rugby Stadium in Worcester at 6pm where there will be a chance to discuss what could be included in the 10-year plan.
Proposals include working with councils and local businesses to maximise the contribution canals and rivers can make such as at Gloucester Docks and Saul Junction.

Closing date is Friday, November 1.
