The Trust’s vision is to make a major difference to the quality of life in Burslem and Middleport through a major regeneration project which will extend from Rogerson’s Meadows and the Trent and Mersey Canal to Furlong Mills in lower Burslem. The completed project will deliver the re-opened Canal Branch, a mini Marina in a newly constructed pool at Furlong Mills, recreational facilities in the “Heritage” buildings on the present Waste Transfer Site, and outdoor/sporting activities along the canal side. The project will provide canalside living for the Slater Street and Co-op Bakery residential redevelopment sites.

The various sub-projects are summarised on the following pages:
