To Minehead Rail Link Group
Minehead town council recognises the benefits of your initiative to establish a commuter rail link from Minehead to Taunton and it is noted that there is an increasing degree of public support for this initiative.
Indeed, this initiative has already been approved in principle by MTC and, as such, MTC wishes to clarify this approval by stating in writing our desire to support Minehead Rail Group alongside other organisations such as the West Somerset Railway plc, West Somerset Council, Somerset County Council and the department of transport.
MTC recognises the work and achievements of West Somerset Railway plc and is willing to support them and other agencies to see what is possible.
It is noted that any future agreements reached with MTC and any other organisations will be subject to ratification by full Council.
It is also noted that this rail initiative is one element of a solution to transport issues which will also be considered.
Signed for and on behalf of Minehead Town Council.
Cllr Norman Hercock
