Welcome. This is an unofficial online information centre set up in the interests of backing Derbyshire County Council's plans to build a new station. As much information as possible has been collated and will be added to regularly. There are links to media articles, documents and reports outlining the County Council's efforts to secure the funding needed to begin work on a new station.
Ilkeston submits video in funding bid
Here is the video submitted by Team Ilkeston in their bid for government generation cash. The “Portas Pilot” would give Ilkeston a share of the £1m available to 12 winning towns, each hoping to improve their image by demonstrating their need for funding with a video.
Team Ilkeston comprise local organisations such as the Erewash Partnership, Ilkeston Chamber of Trade and Ilkeston Academy.
Read and comment on letters/articles sent in by residents, businesses, MPs and Councillors.
