2003 - feasibility study

The housing renewal programme RENEW commissioned a feasibility study by consulting engineers ARUP which showed that the project was feasible and would generate “hidden income” in the form of leisure activities to the tune of an estimated £4 million each year. The study shows the canal as one part of a large refurbishment plan for existing houses in Middleport with a total project cost of around £58m.
