Proposed housing at Froghall
A planning application has been submitted for land directly south of the basin at the start of the Uttoxeter Canal in Froghall. This application puts 48 new houses between the basin and nearby A52. If approved, the development would block all possible alignments for the canal through Froghall, and would permanently end our ongoing project to restore the Uttoxeter Canal.
The Trust is vociferously opposing this application and strongly encourages all supporters to join us in demonstrating strong support for the existing Local Authority policy of protecting the line of the canal through Froghall. The latest updates can be read by following the link below.
