The North East Transport Consultative Forum (NETCF)

Nestrans partners believe that improving our transport infrastructure in the north east is best achieved through working together. To achieve this, the North East Transport Consultative Forum (NETCF) was set up and is used to consult on the work of Nestrans.

The Forum consists of a wide range of interested stakeholders representing a balanced cross-section of economic, environmental and community interests, along with transport operators and interest groups.

Information about the meetings, as well as minutes and documents from previous meetings is available here
