11:00pm Tuesday 25th September 2012 in News
BURNLEY Council leader Julie Cooper has welcomed the decision to give the green light to plans to regenerate Manchester Road railway station as ‘vitally important for Burnley’.
The council’s development control committee granted planning approval to demolish the vacant building and build a modern station building with a larger car park.
Coun Cooper said: “This is a vitally important step for Burnley’s future regeneration.
Manchester Road railway station is at the centre of the improved links being forged between Burnley and Manchester.”
Council chief executive Steve Rumbelow said: “This modern, exciting railway station will be the first impression visitors get of the town, and with the transformations under way it is important that visitors arriving, or passing through see the new, modern, changing Burnley.”
