Shortlisted for The Planning Awards 2021
We are very excited to share that we have been shortlisted for the 2021 Planning Awards.
The category we have been shortlisted under is the Awards for Partnership Working from a piece on how our ‘Merchant Square Community Keeps the Blue Space Clean.’
‘The future of our waterways and oceans with the impact of pollution is a major concern and jointly we are making a strong effort to do our part, inspire others to collaborate and continue educating. The focus for the long-term is to ensure the waterways are accessible for navigation, health & well-being and safe for biodiversity. In the last year approximately over 800+ hours have been committed by our team and more from our partners on canal clearances and together we want communities to understand the concerns and protect not only green but blue space for the future.’
We would like to thank the team, Active 360, GoBoat, Paddington Partnership and the Canal & River Trust for all their great work and contribution. It is fantastic to see these teams come together to make a difference and it is something we will continue to do!
The presentation this year will be virtual and will take place on Wednesday 9th and Thursday 10th June.
