"The responses and feedback people give us during the Phase Two consultation can help to shape the scheme.

"We had some valuable discussions with people at the public exhibitions and we want to make Rail Central the best it can be. We’d encourage anyone who hasn’t submitted their feedback and wants to do so to make sure they send it in by April 23.”

All feedback submitted before the deadline will be logged and reviewed, as well as incorporated into the overall scheme design and development process, in line with the process for Nationally Significant Infrastructure Projects (NSIPs).

Following the close of the consultation, Rail Central will assess all of the feedback and complete further design and technical work before submitting an application to the Planning Inspectorate (PINs).

The application is anticipated to be submitted in the summer.
