|Restoring our Waterways - Breathing life into Maidenhead|
The Maidenhead Waterway project aims to restore and enlarge the neglected town centre
channels into an accessible waterway that everyone can enjoy, whether for boating, walking, cycling,
fishing or simply interacting with nature. Better yet, this will all be in the heart of Maidenhead.
|The Future of Maidenhead|
The Royal Borough has been our partner as the plans have evolved and the restoration of Maidenhead’s waterways has become one of five key initiatives to improve the appearance, amenity and vitality of our town centre. Consultations on the waterway plans met with enthusiastic public support and, as a result, it was included in the council’s adopted Area Action Plan.
|What is involved?|
Maidenhead Waterways (MW) expects to tackle the project in stages, as funding allows,
but the priority is to restore York Stream and Moor Cut to create a ‘ring’ for small boats to operate
around the town centre. To the south, we will also open up the Bray Cut channel to allow small and then
eventually larger craft to enter from the Thames. Longer term, we aim to restore and enlarge the channel
from the Thames in the north, completing a larger circuit.
