Long Marston hosts Stratford Council and Warwick University

We were delighted to welcome Stratford District Council Leader Councillor Tony Jeffers and Martin Yardley from the University of Warwick to Long Marston this week.

Our CEO Mary Grant highlighted the £3 million we have invested to modernise and enhance the rail innovation centre with one-third of this spend in the local economy around Warwickshire. Chief Operating Officer Ben Ackroyd confirmed plans to invest a further £2 million develop a state-of-the-art Asset Management Facility at the site.

A good discussion took place about how institutions like the University of Warwick and businesses such as Porterbrook are supporting future economic development in Warwickshire.
