Plans submitted for Cranbrook railway station

Work could start in spring 2013.

Plans are steaming ahead for the new development in Cranbrook and a planning application has now been submitted for a railway station.

The �4.5million railway station at Cranbrook will be within walking and cycling distance for residents and there will be a dedicated bus loop to provide access to the station entrance.

Outline permission was granted for the scheme in October 2010, and the layout for the station was approved by the County Council’s Cabinet last year.

The scheme, which has been developed by Devon County Council, East Devon District Council and the New Community Partnership, working with Network Rail and South West Trains, includes a single platform, with the potential for a second track and a second platform.
