WITH the constant need for more housing, it is understandable that eyes will be on the Brimscombe Port site, writes John Bond.

However I hope those who make the decisions will take into consideration what a wonderful opportunity this area presents for a first class leisure facility, with shops, cafes and all manner of boating pursuits.

The icing on the cake for the ongoing canal restoration.

Many mistakes have been made in the past because the value of the canal had not been recognised, please do not compound this by not restoring Brimscombe Port.
