Time is running out to have your say on school transport consultation
With only three days left to contribute, parents and carers are being urged not to miss out on their opportunity to give their views on two consultations which propose to reduce the amount spent on home-to-school transport for pupils under 16 years old, post-16 and out-of-county pupils.
The consultations close on Friday 21st March, after which all feedback received will be considered. To take part click here
From September 2014, the County Council will no longer be able continue to subsidise the cost of school transport for many children at the same level, which is why it is considering a package of measures to reduce costs, and proposed increases to fares.
The consultations were launched separately to ensure parents, carers, pupils, schools and other interested parties are fully informed and have the chance to share their opinions and make their own suggestions.
In addition, Mike Appleyard Cabinet Member for Education and Skills has been meeting with parents at public meetings across the County throughout the consultation period. The last one is this evening (Wednesday 19th March) at Sir William Borlase's School, SL7 2BR.
Cllr Appleyard said: "We want to be able to assess the impact of these proposed changes on individuals and would really encourage anyone with an interest in the proposals to take this chance to make their thoughts known.
"I encourage as many parents and carers to complete the consultation survey and come along to the meetings while they still can."
