Celebrating London’s canals and industrial heritage

Angel Canal Festival, City Road Lock

The Islington Labour Councillors for St Peter’s ward staffed a stall at the Angel Canal Festival. This annual event is always a wonderful family occasion and celebration of Regent’s Canal and London’s industrial heritage.

We collected over 100 signatures for a petition calling on the Canal and River Trust to make the canal and towpath safer.

We are lobbying the Canal and River Trust to introduce cycle calming measures on the towpath that force speeding cyclists to slow down, to enforce their license conditions against the small minority of boaters that cause a nuisance, either with noisy smelly generators, or by holding noisy late-night parties and events that disturb residents and other boaters, and to keep the bins emptied. You can read more about this on my fellow ward Councillor Martin Klute’s blog.

City Road Basin is one of the largest open spaces in Islington and Regent’s Canal is an important leisure space. Our whole community should be able to share and enjoy it.
