Campaigners are calling for the southern stub of the City Road basin - drained and covered some years ago - to be reflooded and turned into an inner-city lake. Citing the covered portion's current lack of use, and the popularity of a waterfront view for some of the proposed developments in the area, campaigners told the Islington Gazette that they believe it could be converted into a popular recreational facility with minimal fuss. Given the council's expansive plans to develop other parts of the basin, it's certainly within the realms of possibility.
