The county council has conducted a second consultation on the amount of funding it provides to support local bus services. Based on the feedback we received during the first bus consultation in 2014 the original proposals were amended to reflect some of the concerns raised as well as adding in a review of the value for money criteria which is used to assess which services we should support and ones which we are unable to. Members of the county council considered the feedback from the consultation and its potential impacts and decided on 18 May 2015 that the proposed changes should go forward. Changes to services will take effect from September 2015 and this will include the 388 service. Officers and local members have met with Tewin Parish Council and is in dialogue with the local operators to consider possible options that if funded by the Parish Councils could offer residents in Tewin an alternative to the planned withdrawal of the county council funded service.
