Accountability

The Department for Transport’s accreditation process requires that every community rail partnership (CRP) that has been accredited maintains documents including a Route Prospectus, Terms of Reference, and an annual Action Plan, that is reviewed and amended as appropriate.

Each CRP is also asked to produce an Annual Report of its activities.

Chairman’s Report 2020-21

This summer report outlines the major developments for the Leeds-Morecambe Community Rail Partnership and the Bentham Line during the past twelve months. It reflects on a further busy and, in many ways, rewarding year for the partnership, along with the ongoing challenges placed on us by the coronavirus pandemic.
