National Headquarters Competition for Great British Railways

0%
St Helens Borough and the Liverpool City Region have joined a national government competition to become the home of the Great British Railways National Headquarters. 

The government intends for the HQ of Great British Railways (GBR) to be based outside of London to support their economic levelling up agenda. 

St Helens Borough Council and the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority are leading the bid and have submitted an expression of interest to the government to host the HQ in Newton-le-Willows, the location of one of the original stations on the Liverpool and Manchester Railway which opened in 1830.

Government will now draw up a shortlist to be announced in May, before a public vote will be held to give people the opportunity to show their support for their preferred location. 

We are keen to hear your views about having the Great British Railway Headquarters in St Helens Borough and the benefits that you think this will bring to the Liverpool City Region and the wider region. The data collated will be used to support the bid.
