   Reduction In Public Transport Budget Consultation    28 January, 2015

Devon County Council is consulting on how to reduce its public transport budget in the coming financial year.


To help meet the £50 million budget reduction required by Government spending cuts next year, we now face making savings of £1.7m from our annual public transport budget. It will be the first time that we have proposed making service reductions for four years.

We need your help

We would like to find out what you think about our proposals to reduce services. Please let us know what their impact might be on you.  The proposals would start to come into effect during 2015.

View the proposals and submit your response here: http://new.devon.gov.uk/publictransportbudget/


This consultation closes on Monday 20 April 2015. 


We have also produced a poster for you to print and display within your Parish/Town, to advertise how people can take part.  This can be downloaded here: poster for printing


Background information:

The County Council Cabinet on 14th January approved the proposed approach to reviewing current County Council-funded local bus services and resolved on a public consultation on the measures necessary to meet agreed budget targets for 2015/2016 and 2016/2017.

Information on this decision can be viewed here.

A postal version of the consultation is available on request.

Thank you.
