Itchen Navigation Project, which includes IWA (via IWA’s former Solent and Arun Branch), EA and Hampshire Wildlife Trust aims to conserve and preserve the remains of the former Itchen Navigation, and enhance its waterway environs for the enjoyment of all, although the project is most unlikely to proceed as far as restoration for river traffic.  The Project was awarded a £2 million lottery grant in 2006, which was intended to finance work over five years.
