WYRE Forest’s tourism industry will receive a boost after plans to improve Severn Valley Railway services in Kidderminster were given the go-ahead.

Members of Wyre Forest District Council’s planning committee approved an application during a meeting last night to build a new diesel depot and other facilities at Kidderminster Station.

The development also includes building a storage shed and a small electrical distribution box as well as retaining two former sleeping carriages to provide accommodation for volunteers working on the railway.

The locomotive maintenance and storage buildings will reach 12.8 metres in height.

Planning officers said the visual impact for Chester Road South residents would be “altered” but still “considered acceptable.

Case officer John Baggott added the development would “likely lead to an improvement in terms of noise and fumes”.

Councillors overwhelmingly approved the application, praising Severn Valley Railway’s contribution to Wyre Forest’s tourism industry.

Labour councillor Howard Martin called the decision a “no-brainer”, adding: “At the state of the area debate we talked a great deal about economic development.

“Something we have got that we can really develop and we still do not maximise is our tourism industry.”

Liberal councillor Fran Obosrki added: “I am very proud of the SVR in this district and we cannot stand in their way” while Conservative councillor Marcus Hart said it was “important we do not allow this application to be derailed in any way”.

Excellent news. When is construction likely to start?

Thanks for the link, which essentially repeats what tigger has posted above.
Do you have any thoughts about a timescale for construction work, or will it go on the back burner for a while as fund raising continues?

Just noticed this on the appeal website:
Q. Who will own and control the use of the shed?
A. The Severn Valley Railway. The groups raising funds for the shed will exchange the money raised for shares in the railway.

So if that's the case the share issue will get a nice £250k boost?

Only technically, as the £250k will surely be ring fenced for spending on erecting the Diesel Shed, and not any of the 'plans' in the share issue....

This is the correct situation as I understand it.

Well of course, otherwise the diesel groups will have raised the money for nothing! What I meant was that the share issue as a whole will, although the money won't be for 'Steamworks', get a nice £250k boost for the total raised surely?

As the money raised is not for any of the "2012 share issue" aims it won't count towards the total.

Showing my ignorance here...has that £250k been raised, is in the process of being raised, or yet to be raised? And will it cover the costs entirely or partly, and if partly where else is money coming from, how much and what stage is that additional finance at?

I'm not involved with the project so don't know completely, but the appeal website gives a total of £212k raised so far and implies I think that it will fund the initial construction?

Appeal Website wrote:
"The recent Kidderminster Diesel Shed Appeal Committee meeting has informed us that the total funds raised has now reached £212,000 towards the goal of £250,000 to start the build."


I'm sure someone else can elaborate more...
