Norfolk County Council and the Bittern & Wherry Lines Community Rail Partnerships

The County Council has withdrawn the post of Community Rail Officer and annual funding of £40,000, as part of the current financial review process. The County Council will continue to support the partnerships where possible and work with the rail operator to identify a way forward for both partnerships.

The County Council remains committed to the objectives of the rail partnerships and will work in conjunction with existing members to ensure the future of the partnerships.
