A Wright Streetlite WF has been seen at Heysham docks for 'North West Norfolk Community Transport'.

However the address is the same as West Norfolk Community Transport. Could this be a new vehicle?

I don't think there is a North West Norfolk CT,  but please feel free to correct me.

There are pictures here:

They already have a couple of those buses already, they appear to have a bit of an odd fleet, there might only be two Solo SRs, along with at least two Wright Strretlite,

SK65 PWV is one of the Wright Streetlites

Is West Norfolk doing the Hardwick 6? It wasn't in the original list but I think they might have a black Solo operating the route

I started a thread regarding WNCT the other day forgetting this one
was available. In it I reported that YJ16DZP - Optare was operating on service 6

Perhaps admin could determine whether the 2 threads should be merged

Perhaps I could have put it better.

The decision for an inquiry held on 18 November was published today so it is assumed the West Norfolk one held on 25 November will appear next week.

Full details come even later

The Companies House page for WNCT Ltd appears to show that they have taken out finance with Lloyds Bank as the bank now has a charge on the company.

There are 2 charges from Lloyds bank, one for a mortgage for their yard the other made a day before on 4th Jan isnt clear to what it refers to

One thing I noticed on there was a termination notice on 30th Nov and dated 5th Dec of one of their directors

There are two different companies - WNCT Ltd is the operating company and is a wholly owned subsidiary of West Norfolk Community Transport Project Ltd which is a charity and might have a s19 or s22 licence for minibuses.

Linky York is refering to the operating company and CoastHopper to the owning charity.  The operating company appears to have no assets (at the end of March 2019) which may have prompted the review by the traffic commissioner.

Yes thank you Steves, I was indeed dealing with the operating company which of course is answerable to the TCs
