provide feedback on the outcome of public consultation on proposed
changes to the subsidised bus service budget.
Executive are asked to give consideration to the local bus services which will be withdrawn, reduced or amended to delivery the required budget savings agreed at Full Council in February 2016.
This item was originally scheduled for consideration on 19 May but this meeting has been rescheduled to 2 June to align with the pre-scrutiny process.
The item has been called in for pre-decision scrutiny and will be considered by the Economic Development and Transport Policy and Scrutiny (Pre Decision Calling In) Committee on 18 May prior to a decision being taken by the Executive Member for Transport and Planning on 2 June.
To ensure that the comments and recommendations made at the Economic Development & Transport Policy & Scrutiny Committee meeting on 18th May are given due consideration as part of the decision making process the Executive Member will now consider this item at his Decision Session on 9 June 2016.
In accordance with the recommendation of the pre-decision scrutiny committee meeting on 18 May, this decision will now be taken by Executive on 30 June 2016.
Resolved: That the Executive approve Option B, to retain a reduced subsidy for evening bus services and a scaled back level of service on a proportion of route 20, as set out in paragraphs 49 to 62 of the report.
Reason: This option would not achieve the savings target agreed through the Council’s budget process, however it would, potentially meet many of the needs identified through the public consultation.
