Plans are currently being developed as part of the government's Housing Infrastructure Fund (HIF) to deliver a new rail station in Hoo St Werburgh, Kent. Up to £170 million is to be made available to deliver new rail infrastructure and the proposals centre around building a new railway station and plaza, and making Hoo St Werburgh a rural town, with a raft of road and environmental changes to support the delivery of 12,000 homes over the coming decades.
