There is an opportunity to develop a passenger boat business operating from the visitor Hub at Everards Meadows.  This would be working together with Canal & River Trust and Blaby District Council to deliver the project. 

Everards Meadows is a newly developed tourism destination fully opened in Summer 2021, with over 70 acres of green space to explore, quality cycling and pedestrian walkways that connect to Route 6 on the National Cycle Network.  Located within Everards Meadows is Blue Bank Bridge on the Grand Union Canal which is the proposed location for a brand-new waterways experience.
