Canal strategy floats his boat

Have your say

The Capital’s “canal champion” is to hold an event to celebrate the city’s new canal strategy.

Both the city council and British Waterways (Scotland) see the new strategy as “a major milestone in the renaissance of the 200-year-old Union Canal”.

And Councillor Tim McKay is to hold a celebration of the approval of the canal strategy on January 31 at the Lochrin Basin at Fountainbridge. The event will include the launch of the new “dressing” of the Lochrin Basin.
