DM Waterways

David has been working with the Inland Waterways Association in Parliament to table a series of Parliamentary Questions to the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs to seek Government support for the waterways in Northampton and the Anglia region.

David previously worked with the Inland Waterways Association to mark the 200th anniversary of the opening of the Northampton Arm of the River Nene whilst he was Leader of Northampton Borough Council, to plan a major waterways event that was held in Becket’s Park in August 2015.

David said: “The waterways are an important feature for Northampton and a key part of the town’s regeneration so I am keen to support the Inland Waterways Association to ensure that the waterways get the funding and maintenance they need to continue being an important asset for the town.”
