star this property answer text <p>The Partnership agreement that I signed on 20th March 2015 with Rail North Ltd clearly signals our intention that Rail North takes greater devolved responsibility over time. It also sets out the process and criteria by which such decisions may be made. The new devolved management arrangements only started on 1st April 2016 and therefore no timescale or deadline has been set at this stage for full devolution to be achieved. A copy of the Partnership agreement can be found at <a href="http://www.railnorth.org/governance/rail-north-dft-partnership/" target="_blank">http://www.railnorth.org/governance/rail-north-dft-partnership/</a>.</p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this
