Stage 2 Public Consultation
Another stage of the project to reopen the Portishead line is now complete. This was the public consultation for the Development Consent Order, a legal requirement for the next, critical step towards trains running.
The aim of the consultation was to collect public opinion about the proposed line and train service as a whole, as currently planned. It was not about choices over what stations, what service levels or what extra features need to be added in. We are past that stage!
The main consultation took place between 23 October and 4 December 2017. Further section 42 consultation took place from 22 October to 23 November 2018.
Exhibitions took place in Portishead, Long Ashton, Pill, Ashton Gate stadium and Temple Meads.
A report on the consultation was published on 17 July 2018. View report >>
