Station should be in plans

Sir,

Regarding your frustration over the station bid delay, maybe the strategic housing locations put forward by Erewash Borough Council are not helping your cause.

Are any of the locations within walking distance of a railway station, if we had one or on main bus routes that would pass by a station?

What future incentive can you see for commuting by train to work from the locations for strategic housing planned for the future around Ilkeston?

I am in support of a station and the use of public transport but are the local planners?
