The Canal & River Trust has launched its 'prospectus for London', highlighting what it sees as the ways that its waterways in the capital can contribute to "good growth, prosperity and wellbeing".
- "Grand Union Canal Quietway", the development of the towpath in West London as a walking and cycling route, based on a study which suggests that more than half of commuters using the River Lee towpath would have driven or taken public transport if the waterside route had not been available.
- Using waterways for heating, cooling, drainage and building materials transport for new developments.
- Eco-mooring zones with charging points as a contribution to cleaner air
- More use of towpaths for routing electronic communication networks
