ACP Wishlist

Part of our October 2016 event was devoted to brainstorming ideas towards what we’re calling an ACP Wishlist. The idea of the ‘Wish List’ is to create a document that touches upon a number of areas/themes/desires that people have with respect to the Ashton and Rochdale Canals in Ancoats. Some of these things our group may be able to work on as part of our normal course of events or we might be able to seek a partner to collablorate with. There might be things that are appropriate for others to do, for example, if a business or group wants to hold a staff community event or do something towards Corporate Social Responsbility. 

In a nutshell, we thought it would be a good idea to keep a dynamic list of things that represent what people feel is needed and/or desired along the canals, some of which our group might be proactive about doing or facilitating or others which might spark someone else’s interest to take the initiative on or for which they can provide funding/resources/support.

Below is a link to a document containing the ideas we have gathered so far; the headings are not meant to be limiting in any way.

Please feel free to respond back to our group at if you have other ideas you’d like to see included.

There are only a few ideas listed under the heading ‘Nature’ because we already have a Nature Trail vision that highlights many ideas around plantings.
