On Thursday 17th May, Lancashire County Council’s Cabinet will consider a recommendation to support the transfer of the services provided at Carnforth Information Centre to a Community Rail Partnership (Leeds-Morecambe line for Carnfortn Transport Information Centre). This was following the submission of a ‘comprehensive and well thought out proposal’ that ‘outlined clear steps intended for a potential service takeover to maintain the current service and to develop the service further with new initiatives’.Current staff will be retained and it is expected that the group will be in a position to take over the services within a period of 3 – 6 months. The full report can be viewed here:
Many congratulations to all involved. The Town Council looks forward to supporting the Community Group going forward.
