The consultation with our stakeholders called for further development of community rail and our education programmes. The Treasury however has asked for 25% cuts to community rail budgets going against the growing appetite for communities to be connected to their railway. Thank you to all our stakeholders and interest groups who have sent letters  to the Rail Minister and local MPS in support of more community rail, not less.

Our stakeholder survey asked us to publish more information on the website and widen our membership of the Stakeholder Advisory Board.  Please explore the About Us Section of the website to keep up to date with new reports from the SCRP Board and the the updated Policy Section .

We have also altered the terms of reference the Stakeholder Advisory Board and for Steering Groups to make our vision more succinct and changing emphasis on the environment and sustainability .
