Rossendale Borough Council secured £50,000 funding from Restoring Your Railway and £100,000 from Lancashire County Council to appoint Systra to produce a Strategic Outline Business Case (SOBC).

 

Two surveys, one for individuals and one for businesses, were published on the 14th May 2022 and closed on the 22nd June 2022. You can read the results of the surveys HERE.

 

The SOBC is expected to be complete in September 2022.
