Local Rail Member Working Group
Wrexham County Borough Council took the decision to form a Task & Finish Group of Elected Members, which first met in November 2004. The initial intention was to improve the representation and importance of rail services in the forthcoming Regional Transport Plan.
The groups’ current membership is:
- Councillor Terry Evans
- Councillor David Bithell (Chairman)
- Councillor Ron Davies
- Councillor Alun Jenkins (Vice Chair)
The group meets between four and six times per year with the Community Rail Officers of the Borderlands and Chester – Shrewsbury Rail Partnerships as well as officer representatives of the Environment Department. Regular agenda items include updates from the Shrewsbury – Chester Rail Partnership (external link) and the Borderlands Steering Group (external link), current projects, proposed timetable amendments and improvements to rail infrastructure. The group occasionally invites representatives from the rail industry.
