The plan to kick start the renaissance of the popular Union Canal won a prestigious national waterways award.

The Edinburgh Union Canal Strategy beat off strong competition from across the UK to scoop the 'Strategy & Masterplanning' category of The 2012 Waterways Renaissance Awards.

The awards, run by The Waterways Trust, reward exceptional projects that have turned inland waterways into desirable places for living, learning and leisure.
