WORK on controversial plans for 12 canalside houses is scheduled for next spring.

British Waterways’ £4.5 million development at Marsworth Yard was accepted last month.

British Waterways spokesman Sarah Rudy said: “The plans include developing 12 new houses as well as the upgrade of the former house on the site.

“There will also be upgrades made to the boater facilities in the area as well as plans to improve access.”

Marsworth residents reacted fiercely to the scale of the development when it was discussed by Aylesbury Vale District Council in April 2011 and alterations to the plan were recommended.
