Network Rail License

Network Rail have granted VoBR a license to clear the undergrowth around the track in Oldminster Sidings.

This is as a result of many months of negotiations, led by Trustee Robin Payne and follows on from a series of ecology surveys VoBR commissioned over the last two years, headed up by Trustee Graham Wiltshire. All work on the sidings will be in full compliance with the stipulations from the ecology surveys and the Wildlife & Countryside Act 1981.

VoBR are continuing negotiations with Network Rail, in order to secure a full lease for the sidings and section of the branch line.
