Transport group's appeal to preserve March to Spalding railway line in Cowbit likely to fail, admits county councillor for village
Cowbit's voice at county level has raised doubts of a comeback for the Spalding to March rail line, despite the "travesty" of its closure.
Coun Nigel Pepper, Lincolnshire County Council member for Cowbit, admitted the likelihood of the rail line being reopened was slim, despite calls by the English Regional Transport Association for a planned housing scheme on the site to be conditional on the rail track being protected.
However, Coun Pepper did share his hope that developers of the former Station Yard site, off Mill Drove South, Cowbit, can be persuaded to include the 19th century goods shed in its scheme.
