Notice of Motion - Cuts to Leisure Park Shuttle Bus Services

Mover:            Councillor Gary Watts

Seconder:      Councillor Colin Regan  

 

 

The Council notes that the Leisure Park Shuttle Bus Service evening and Sunday services were cut on 4th March 2019.

 

As a consequence, Council notes-

 

·         The cuts make it more difficult for Town Centre and Leisure Park workers getting to work;

 

·         The cuts make it more difficult for young people, disabled, elderly, and vulnerable people to access the Leisure Park in the evenings and Sundays;

 

·         The Leisure Park venues loss of revenue is a threat to their economic viability;

 

·         Loss of evening and Sunday Park and Ride services increases the economic threat to the viability of Festival Place;

 

·         Loss of Sunday and evening Shuttle Bus services will increase car usage and therefore the air quality of the Borough will continue to decline.

 

The Council also notes that the funding reduction was based on bus usage figures that are focused on selective data.

 

The Council is therefore requested to refer the Leisure Park Shuttle Bus Service to the Scrutiny Committee to review the consequences of the decision on cutting evening and Sunday bus services.
