A canals trust has raised concern over a proposed housing development for the Moorlands which could possibly end a canal restoration project, if given the green light. The Caldon & Uttoxeter Canals Trust is campaigning against a planning application which has been submitted to Staffordshire Moorlands District Council (SMDC) for a “residential development (49 dwellings), including formation of new access, landscaping and associated works, and restoration of listed farmhouse and re-use as a dwelling house” at Froghall Wharf, Froghall Road in Froghall.
