07/09/2020 - Councillor Call for Action (CCfA) - Temporary Withdrawal of the rail service on the on the Rose Hill Line ref: 4629    Recommendations Approved

Decision Maker: Chief Executive

Decision published: 08/09/2020

Effective from: 07/09/2020

Decision:

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.
