Foxton Locks Country Parks Destination Management Plan

Andrew is currently looking at the opportunities for visitor accommodation development at Foxton Locks Country Park in Leicestershire. Foxton Locks is a flight of 10 canal locks on the Grand Union Canal, 5km west of Market Harborough. The locks and surrounding country park are a popular tourist attraction. The Canal & River Trust has commissioned AMION Consulting to produce a Destination Management Plan for the site, to include consideration of the potential to introduce some form of visitor accommodation. Andrew identified Foxton Locks as a key opportunity site as part of the work that he undertook in January 2015 to assess the potential for visitor accommodation development in East Leicestershire. AMION has thus brought him in to undertake a more detailed assessment of the opportunities to introduce accommodation at the site.
