Previous Action

The campaign to reopen Blackford railway station has been ongoing since 2001 when it successfully campaigned to prevent the opening of a general freight depot. It was proposed at the time that a passenger station with dedicated freight access for Highland Spring would be more beneficial to the village and surrounding area. Campaign Members have been involved as key consultees in the development of the draft regional transport strategy. The proposal was also debated at the Scottish Parliament on 28 March 2007 with great support. Campaign members have also lobbied and approached a number of key organisations and individuals to get their support in promoting this campaign with the key decision makers.

Elected representative support: Gordon Banks MP, John Purvis MEP, Murdo Fraser MSP, Elizabeth Smith MSP, Roseanna Cunningham MSP, Perth & Kinross Council, Stirling Council, Anne McGuire MP, Richard Simpson MSP, Murdo Fraser MSP, Ted Brocklebank.
