Implementation of Budget Savings on Council Funded Local Bus Services
Purpose of Report:
This report is presented in light of the decision to reduce
expenditure on local bus services taken at Full Council in February
2014. Cabinet are now presented with a list of bus services which
will be either reduced or withdrawn to make the required saving for
the financial year 2015/16.
Members are asked to confirm the service reductions and to consider an option for additional savings, should they be required.
This decision will be taken by the Cabinet Member at a public Decision Session on 11 December 2014.
This decision will now be taken by the full Cabinet on 6 January 2015 rather than the Cabinet Member. Recognising the impact of this decision on bus service users, it is considered that Cabinet are best placed to consider the report and balance the needs of other services and users that would be required to be cut should the recommendation in the report not be approved.
