Loughton Town Council has agreed to push forward with plans to try and get a night bus reinstated into the district.

A late service used to come into the town from central London but was cut off at Woodford in 1996.

Councillors have agreed to ask Transport for London (TFL) to consider extending the route N55 to Debden Station.

The decision comes as plans to add a night service to tube lines did not include the Loughton on the Central Line.

Due to an increasing night time economy and the town’s popularity with commuters the council believes that late night links to the capital are needed.
