The Chinnor and Princes Risborough Railway Association Limited (CPRRA) is applying to the Secretary of State for Transport for an Order under the Transport and Works Act 1992 (the Transfer Order) to transfer the statutory rights and responsibilities for some of the track at Princes Risborough Station, including an approximately half-mile length of railway track, from Network Rail Infrastructure Limited (NR) to CPRRA for the purposes of our heritage railway undertaking. The land on which these tracks stand is already leased to us.
We are not seeking here permission for any development. This is existing railway. The Transfer Order is solely about transferring statutory responsibility for the relevant part of the railway line.
We are hoping to complete this process within a year. The process requires consultation with all interested parties. We warmly invite you to submit any views, questions, or comments you may have about the proposed Transfer Order to the address below.
We have sent information to neighbouring residents and businesses in Horsenden Lane, Summerleys Road, and Northmill, Princes Risborough. We are also consulting the appropriate authorities (e.g. Princes Risborough Town Council, Chinnor Parish Council, and Buckinghamshire Council). See copies of both information and consultation letters dated 01 June 2020.
If you have any queries, wish to express concerns, or to support us, please contact CPRRA, either by post to TWAO Project, Chinnor & Princes Risborough Railway, Chinnor Station, Station Road, Chinnor OX39 4ER, or by email to TWAO@chinnorrailway.co.uk. We anticipate making our application soon and we would appreciate your comments before 30 June please.
