No objection to new marina

Published: Monday, 26 October 2009

NEWCASTLE Borough Council's planning officers have no objection to the proposed new marina on the Shropshire Union Canal at Soudley near Market Drayton.

The officers believe the new 200 berths marina will have no adverse impact, having been asked for its views, with it being just over its border.

The marina would have just two residential moorings, and buildings—including accommodation—a repair workshop and shower block, in addition to new roads, car parking and a pedestrian footbridge.

Officers recommend no objections are raised to the plans, when the planning committee meets this week.

However, Shropshire Council have the final decision on the plans, by Moore Marine Developments.
