The deadline for taking part in a consultation on a proposal to close the ticket office at Alfreton train station has been pushed back.

East Midlands Railway (EMR) launched the consultation at the beginning of July as part of of national reforms announced by the Rail Delivery Group to modernise the industry.

The ticket office at Alfreton train station is currently open between 6.45am and 6pm Monday to Saturday, and between 10.30am and 6.30pm on Sundays.

However, the proposal is to close the ticket office and make staff more visible elsewhere in the station and to support passengers with accessibility needs and offer advice about train fares.
