Rossendale Council has submitted an application to the Government’s Restoring Your Railway Fund. This is a new fund announced by the Government to bring forward rail infrastructure. Successful bidders will be awarded £50,000 to supplement feasibility work and can link to further capital funding.
In 2018, the Council developed an early strategic case for investment which identified five possible delivery options and concluded that such a link was both feasible and viable.
