Stanford station upgrade one step closer
THURROCK Council’s cabinet member for regeneration, Cllr Mark Coxshall, is pleased to confirm that the long awaited Stanford Station improvements are a step closer with the purchase of land opposite the site.
Cllr Mark Coxshall, said: “This land provides an exciting opportunity to further improve the quality of the scheme and provide even more community benefits. Plans will increase accessibility to the station, provide higher quality public space than initially thought possible and deliver station facilities to enable our communities to be better connected as well as commuters to enjoy.
“Our ambitious regeneration proposals will set the tone for future high quality development across the borough, invigorate Stanford’s town centre and encourage more people to use local businesses.”
The major redevelopment project will create a modern transport hub with space for buses, cyclists and vehicle drop-offs. Works will help ease congestion within the local area and improved parking will support the local high street.
