The Transport for the South East group of 16 local authorities covering the region from Hampshire and Berkshire to Kent has begun consultation on its draft case for acquiring statutory status as a subnational transport body.
This would give it the right to be consulted on new franchises, a formal role in setting the High Level Output Specification, and powers to deliver a region-wide integrated smart ticketing scheme.
The consultation closes on July 31 and TfSE aims to submit a final proposal to the government by the end of the year.
‘A regional transport body that can directly influence how and where money is spent, with the power to deliver real improvements for people and businesses, is absolutely vital if we’re to continue growing our economy, supporting new housing, improving quality of life and protecting our precious environment', said TfSE Chair and Leader of East Sussex County Council Keith Glazier on May 7.
