Panel to answer questions on Saltford Station reopening

A meeting will be held this month where members of the public will be able to put their questions on the reopening of Saltford Station to a panel.

A campaign to bring the railway station back into use has moved several steps forward over the past few months, with news that B&NES will fund a £100,000 study into the proposal and the multi-million pound City Deal with the Government that could include Saltford in a range of rail improvements in the Greater Bristol area.

Now residents are invited to share their views at the public meeting on Thursday, October 25, at 8pm in the main hall at Saltford Hall, Wedmore Road.

The meeting will follow a “Question Time”-style format, where residents can quiz members of the panel.

Saltford Parish Council is organising the event and hopes the panel will include:

- Bath and North East Somerset Cabinet Member for Transport, Councillor Roger Symonds

- a Bath and North East Somerset Council senior transport officer

- Chris Warren representing the Saltford Station Campaign

- a Bath and North East Somerset ward councillor for Saltford

- Reg Williams as an independent Saltford resident

- a representative of the West of England Enterprise Partnership

The meeting will be chaired by resident Maurice Short.
