Millpool Hill Marina Development Brief

Approved Planning Policies Banner

This Development Brief sets out proposals for a canal boat marina on the Stratford Upon Avon Canal at Millpool Hill, Alcester Road South. The brief has been adopted as Supplementary Planning Guidance.

The Development Brief aims to promote and guide the development of a marina and ancillary facilities that would cater for long and short term residential moorings. This section of canal provides an important leisure and environmental corridor and it is envisaged that a new marina in this location will improve the facilities available for users of the canal and the wider canal network.

Key proposals include:

  • A facility for 70 - 80 canal boats
  • Promotion of water based tourist and leisure facilities and activities
  • Promotion of quality development and the enhancement of the environment and areas of archaeological and ecological importance.
  • Options for road access arrangements.

The brief will be used to promote the development of the site, and encourage the submission of planning applications. These would then be determined in the context of the brief.

A revised and updated development brief is currently being prepared to replace this document. This page will be updated as the new version progresses.
