Station announcement

Cllr David Mackintosh, leader of Northampton Borough Council, warmly welcomed the announcement by the Rt Hon Justine Greening, Secretary of State for Transport, of funding to allow the redevelopment of Castle Station to go ahead.
"This is fantastic news that shows what can be achieved through the strength of our shared commitment to the growth of Northampton.  It underlines the confidence that exists at a national level in our ability to deliver the vision for the town’s future - we are not just making plans for regeneration, we are seeing them come to life,” Cllr Mackintosh said.
In March, Cllr Mackintosh, Brian Binley MP and John Markham, Chairman of West Northamptonshire Development Corporation, met with Justine Greening to discuss the urgent need for investment in the station.
"This is a really key decision for Northampton. All the major projects taking place in the town are connected and the station is one of the lynchpins.  It’s wonderful to hear that this major investment is going ahead,” Cllr Mackintosh said.
