Southall canalside improvements

Thank you to everyone who completed the online survey and attended online sessions in early 2021 to give us your views and suggestions on how we can improve the canal-side in Southall.

The five areas suggested for improvements are:

  • Spikes Bridge Park
  • Bankside 
  • Southall Recreation Ground 
  • Havelock Road Canalside Park
  • Glade Lane Canalside Park and Norwood Top Lock

How can we create more special canal places in Southall?

We are investigating opportunities and innovative ways to enable:

  • Creating attractive and inviting spaces on and around the canal
  • Linking the canal from nearby areas
  • Improving the environment
  • Providing opportunities to enjoy the canal and connect with the water and nature
  • Providing opportunities to connect with others and enjoy family time outdoors
  • Provide nice places to wander, dwell, exercise
  • Link community culture and the canal

I have a question/I would like to be kept up to date

If you have any questions or would like to be kept up to date with progress, please send an email with the title Southall Have your Say to

What happens next

With the input from the survey and the online sessions, we will develop the proposals and hope to be able to seek funding to put them into place to make better canal-side places for everyone in Southall:

  • 28 February 2021 – online survey closed
  • May 2021 – summary report produced
  • Autumn 2021 – survey results fed back to the community
  • Results will be used to fundraise to develop the ideas into designs
  • Engagement with local residents and stakeholders once funding is secured
