New marina at Slapton Lock

Here we go again yet another marina application has been submitted to Aylesbury council.
This one is for 180 berths all the details are HERE.
Plan of proposed marina at Slapton lock.

Showing the end of marina nearest the road bridge.

So immediately behind the 4 long term moorings by the lock will be a chandlery, pump out, cafe, two dry docks and a slipway plus the toilets and showers. So these boaters lose their rural mooring and the lock cottage loses the view across the lock and fields.

The marina will stretch down to the canal bend with the marina entrance just before the bend.

Already outline planning has been granted for a 100 berth marina at Ivinghoe. Details can be found HERE. The original drawing shows 170 berths but the outline plan extension mentions 100. Watch this space.
So I did say watch this space. Just found a plan bearing the ref no. showing 200 berths that was approved HERE.

Google eye view of the site. As you pass under bridge 123 it is on the left where the golf range used to be. It will have a new towpath bridge at the entrance and all the fibre optic cabling under the towpath will have to be re routed.

Around here golf ranges soon become multi-storied town houses squeezed tightly together and sporting prices in the low C$599,000's as a starter. Very poorly built there's always a lineuo of new buyers with the average mortgage being in 2.5/annum percent range. $100,000 down and it's yours.Plus 13 percent sales tax!
How's that to float your (narrow) boat, eh?
