Good news - the planning application which would have blocked the future restoration of the Uttoxeter Canal at Froghall was unanimously rejected by SMDC's Planning Applications Committee this afternoon.

Rupert Smedley represented CUCT and IWA as one of the objectors speaking against the application, and there was a very robust recommendation for refusal by the planning officers.

The councillors voted to reject the proposal on a number of grounds, one of which being the future restoration of the canal. Many thanks to everyone who has supported our cause and sent in their own objections over the last six months.
