Following a specific request from the Chair
and members of the Werneth Area Committee, I have given approval to
the allocation of £15,000 from the Area Committee’s
Delegated Budget (£7,500 from each of the Bredbury &
Woodley and Bredbury Green & Romiley ward allocations) towards
the cost of funding the provision of an alternative rail service on
the Rose Hill (Marple) to Guide Bridge railway line for a temporary
one week period.
The use of the allocated funding is contingent on the successful outcome of discussions between officers of the council, Transport for Greater Manchester, the rail industry and potential operators of such service with specific regard to the detail of any such proposal; its viability; legality and governance; costings; and the identification of further sources of potential funding and sponsorship.
This decision reflects and should be read in conjunction with, that which was similarly taken by the Marple Area Committee on 2 September 2020 and which was published as Executive Decision ref ACEDM354 on 4 September 2020.
This decision has been taken under urgency provisions as it was not practicable to convene a meeting of the Werneth Area Committee at which this decision could otherwise be taken.
Decision Reference: ODCE17
Declarations or conflicts of Interest: None.
