Letter: Sad to see canal work halted

Have your say

The CPRE Committee are extremely disappointed that the restoration of the canal area on Oakham has come to a halt reportedly due to budgetary issues.

I understand that there may be funds available to the Council from the housing development at Barleythorpe. It would be wonderful if such monies would enable the Council to release funds for the development of the canal area. This would be a marvellous opportunity for our local community to create a lasting and beautiful conservation area, close to the town, for the enjoyment of all. Councillors, can we leave this in your safe hands please?
