Cannock Chase Council had already agreed in principle with Staffordshire County Council to provide funding towards these new services and was alarmed to discover they were going to be withdrawn. Having resolved the situation the council will be meeting next month to ensure the improvements are not threatened again.
"We must ensure that no similar situation like this happens again. The Council has arranged a meeting next month with key stakeholders to establish why this situation developed and to make sure that we all work together to secure future improvements - and not cutbacks - to the rail service." http://www.aboutmyarea.co.uk/Staffordshire/Cannock/WS11/News/Local-News/143957-Chase-Line-good-news#
