Date of External Board/Outside Body Meeting Attended




Purpose of the External Board/Outside Body:

The body acts as the Co-ordinating body for the Community Rail Partnerships in Kent. The Committee currently has 2 such lines the Medway Valley Line and Swale Line.




Since the last report the focus for the partnership has continued to be on the ongoing discussions regarding the new rail franchises. Obviously as an MBC representative this has been my focus as well. Discussions on service revisions and time tabling revisions are also ongoing. Hopefully there will be more concrete information in the next report, but the full meeting that was to take place earlier this month has been rearranged until after the reporting deadline for SPST.
