   NYCC Bus Consultation    20 October, 2015

A report outlining the results of the consultation was presented to the Transport, Economy and Environment Overview and Scrutiny Committee this week. The full report and appendices can be found at http://democracy.northyorks.gov.uk/committees.aspx?commid=30&meetid=3224

 

The draft TEE O&S recommendations at their meeting are as follows :-

 

a)      That the Transport, Economy and Environment Overview and Scrutiny Committee broadly supports the proposals in the report, in light of the current financial climate to achieve budget requirements of £1.5 million spend in bus subsidy each year from 2016/17, and taking into account the Equalities Impact Assessment.

 

b)      That the Transport, Economy and Environment Overview and Scrutiny Committee is of the view that an essential network service be maintained across all areas of the county and, as part of this, fully supports the County Council working pro-actively with communities to achieve community transport and other local transport solutions.

 

c)       That the Executive be encouraged to invite Robert Goodwill MP and Andrew Jones MP (Parliamentary Under Secretaries of State at the Department for Transport) for further discussions around government support to rural areas particularly in relation to transport.

 

 

The report will now go to The Executive on Tuesday 8 December 2015.
