White Rose is a proposed railway station between Cottingley and Morley on the Calder Valley Line. It was featured in the Governments plans for the railway in November 2017 and in July 2018 further details were revealed as part of the Connecting Leeds Vision with the consultation inviting opinions from the general public.
The proposed station would serve the White Rose Centre and the Millshaw Business Park, and its location would be 2,460 feet (750 m) south of Cottingley railway station. The council are considering whether to retain Cottingley station or to close it, if and when, White Rose opens.
The station is to be financed from the £173.5 million Department for Transport money that was given to Leeds City Council but left without portfolio when the trolleybus scheme across Leeds was denied permission by Patrick McLoughlin. The funds need to be used by the financial year 2020–2021.
