Great Northern seeking new tenant at Downham Market station

Train operator Great Northern is seeking a new tenant for its retail unit at Downham Market station. Following the vacation of the unit last year, local MP Elizabeth Truss has been working with Great Northern to seek interest from local independent businesses or individuals considering setting up their own retail venture. 

Elizabeth Truss MP commented ‘I am keen to see the Railway Arms and café operational as soon as possible. This is a uniquely placed asset in the town, welcoming visitors and commuters to Downham Market. The location could offer an exciting new enterprise for a local person and I have been working with Downham Town Council and train operator Great Northern to ensure the site is promoted. Repairs at the station are currently underway and as a gateway to the Fens and surrounding villages, the investment in upgrading the facilities is welcome news.’

AMEY TPT manage the retail unit and anyone who would like to enquire for further details can contact Damian O’Connor at TPT on damian.o'connor@amey.co.uk.
