NCC PROPOSAL TO REMOVE BUS SUBSIDIES TO ROUTE 499
NCC are currently reviewing the budget for 2018/19 onwards. They are under severe pressure to find the resources for Adult and Children’s Social Care, for which they have a statutory obligation. As part of potential savings measures they are proposing to remove the subsidies for a number of bus routes.
This will include the subsidy to the number 499 bus that runs through the village. The removal of the subsidy does not necessarily mean the removal of the bus service but it is likely to have an impact on the commercial viability of the route.
The review of bus subsidies is only part of a wider review affecting all aspects of NCC’s budget.
