Community Stations

Locally owned Community Stations were developed as part of Citizens’ Rail – in Burnley (UK) and Pays de la Loire (France).

The Burnley project saw the construction of a brand new community-focused station building, owned by Burnley Council, which includes a booking and information office, a ‘coffee cart’ as well as providing a base for the East Lancashire Community Rail Partnership.

Meanwhile in France, seven disused rural station buildings were consulted on with the local community to explore potential uses for the buildings.
