THOSE who use Whittlesey rail station – and those who might be tempted to do so- are being asked to help draw up a wish list of improvements.

Fenland District Council and the town council are proposing a six week consultation on ideas that include better parking, waiting shelters and access.

Last year the council published its longer term strategy for Fenland which set out specific options for Whittlesey including better links for commuters into Peterborough and a longer platform.

Councillor Ralph Butcher, FDC’s portfolio holder for transport, said they were drawing up a draft master plan for Whittlesey Station and needed the public to give their views.

“The final version of the plan will be implemented in future years so it is important that people give their views now to influence the future design of Whittlesey train station,” he said.

Three venues have been earmarked for the public to attend in June including two events at the town council offices on June 11 and 15 and at the station itself on June 19.

Councillor David Mason, the Mayor of Whittlesey, said: “The station area has been sadly neglected for some years.
