Stanton Cross, Wellinborough, is a £1bn development providing over 3,500 new homes and approximately 3,000 new jobs in over 100 acres of commercial and mixed-use development. It is one of Bovis Homes’ largest schemes.
One of the key attractions of the development is its excellent rail links to London and the North due to the site’s close proximity to Wellingborough railway station. But when the government consulted on their plans to change the services ahead of refranchising the route, this raised concerns about Wellingborough’s connectivity and the impact it might have on the development.
By organising a grassroots campaign bringing together residents, commuters and local politicians, we are working to persuade the Government not to change the route. Because of our work, discussions are currently underway with government advisers and ministers.
