RAIL STATION TICKET OFFICE CLOSURES MOTION UPDATE

On the 6th of October 2022 at a meeting of Stockport Council, Councillor Angie Clark moved a motion regarding the Council’s concern to the Department for Transport’s and the Rail Delivery Group’s potential plans to close all railway station ticket offices in England.
The Council ultimately resolved to refer this issue to the Economy and Regeneration Scrutiny Committee with the recommendation that representatives from Northern and Avanti West Coast are invited to attend a Scrutiny Meeting at the earliest possible point to discuss future plans for staffing at our local stations.
This meeting is, therefore, being attended by rail representatives.
