Councillors put off a discussion about proposals to relocate Lowestoft's railway station at their meeting last night.

Waveney District Council members were being asked to support a motion put forward by councillors Graham Elliott and Ruth Ford recognising the importance of the station and pledging to keep it where it is.

Proposals by the 1st East regeneration company which will see the area undergo a major revamp call for the station to be moved 400 metres away from the town centre.

Before the meeting Mr Elliott said he was looking for a “strong commitment” from fellow councillors to keep the railway station where it is.

“It is the best located station in Suffolk and possibly East Anglia,” he said.

However, councillors did not debate the issue and voted to defer any discussion to a later date.
