Save the Lapal Canal from Battery Park development

121 Signatures Goal: 5,000

The Lapal Canal is the derelict half of the Dudley No.2 canal lying dormant
between Hawne Basin in Halesowen and Selly Oak in Birmingham. It closed to
full navigation in 1917 when the most recent collapse of the Lapal tunnel
was deemed too costly to repair. In due course, the open-air approach canal
sections were gradually closed and abandoned for safety . This included the
link section between Selly Oak Park and the Worcester and Birmingham Canal
through the plot of land now called Battery Park in recognition of the
former Birmingham Battery and Metal Company.

This petition is now closed. The trust is delighted to announce that the Harvest Partnership responsible for the site has agreed to include funding to restore a section of the Lapal Canal joining the Worcester and Birmingham Canal at Selly Oak.
