General approvals

Components

Sections 18(1)(c) and 22(3) of the Railways Act 1993 enables ORR to give its prior approval of new access agreements and to the amendment of existing agreements.

We have produced wide-ranging general approvals for use in the majority of station and depot access applications for new agreements, and amendments to existing agreements. 

The General Approval for stations (2017) and the General Approval for depots (2017) can be found below. 

In addition, we have also produced comprehensive guidance documents for both the General Approval for depots (2017) and the General Approval for stations (2017) and these can also be found below. 

If you require any further information on using the general approvals, please contact us.
