Burslem canal restoration - New group formed to take the scheme forward.

SUPPORTERS of a canal restoration project have agreed to form a not-for-profit group to take the scheme forward.

The group met at Burslem’s School of Art to work towards creating a new organisation to back the Burslem Port Project, which aims to restore the old Burslem Branch Canal, in Middleport.

It was decided the team of experts in law, finance, local government, heritage, and higher education would team up with the Burslem Port team of waterways enthusiasts, to undertake research.

They will also write a new constitution.

Burslem Port’s chairman Roger Savage said: “We are delighted to get such influential support for our project, which will set the stage for the next exciting steps forward.”

Project officer David Dumbelton added: “After many years of research, planning and negotiation we are now able to call on the experience and professionalism of current and retired senior managers in industry, commerce and the professions to help us achieve our ambition.”
