The Regent’s Canal Conservation Area was designated by the London Borough of Hackney in 2007. It comprises a unique linear green corridor that runs for almost 4km right through the southern part of the borough and provides important public amenity space both on the water and along the towpath. It is a place of ecological diversity that brings plants and wildlife into the heart of the city. As industrial transport has declined, wildlife has increased. Like all London’s canals, the Regent’s Canal and its basins were identified by the GLA in 2002 as a Site of Metropolitan Importance for Nature Conservation. The Hackney stretch of the canal is just a couple of miles of a 3,000 mile network of inland waterways that cover much of England. Canals are a public asset and they are managed on behalf on the general public by British Waterways.
