747 Bus Service

The Parish Clerk attended a further meeting of the 747 Bus Committee last night and, due to the continued efforts of all the Parish Councils along the route have managed to persuade LCC and RCC to continue their subsidy for the whole of 2018. Therefore, this means the service will continue, with the same timetable as before until 1st January 2019. It was also decided to continue meeting as a group through 2018 to monitor and keep up the momentum and dialogue with LCC, RCC and Centrebus.

Neighbourhood Plan

Tugby & Keythorpe's Neighbourhood Plan

The Parish Council has now had confirmation that our intention to produce a Plan has been accepted by HDC (see article below).

Therefore, with regard to the preparation of our Neighbourhood Plan, on liaising with Hallaton Parish Council (who are just commencing their Plan), and after very extensive research, the Parish Council has decided to go the way of many other Town and Parish Councils and recruit the services of a third party. We will be using a local company, based in the Langtons, who are specialists in town and country planning, etc., therefore, have all the expertise and office equipment to carry out the very complicated and time consuming work.

Leaflets are going to be delivered in this and February editions of the Village Diary informing the village of an Opening Morning on Saturday, 3rd February 2018 at the Village Centre where Gary Kirk, of YourLocale will be on hand to inform the village about how they are going to formulate and deliver our Neighbourhood Plan. This Opening Morning is being organised so that everyone can have their say on planning matters, etc.

Total funding for this work will be provided by a special fund provided by the Government via HDC.

The Parish Council thanks those who kindly offered their services.

Notice of Decision to Designate Tugby & Keythorpe Neighbourhood Area

Neighbourhood Plan - Tugby & Keythorpe Parish Council

On 21st December, 2016, the Parish Council received an email from Lee Quincey, LCC stating the following:

Following confirmation of Centrebus's intention to withdraw the Leicester to Uppingham 747 bus service from 8th January 2017, both Leicestershire and Rutland County Council have been actively exploring options on how best to cater for local residents' essential needs.

Whilst clearly both Council's cannot be the long term provider of last resort subsidy in situations like this; having considered the options, the provision of emergency one off funding to maintain this route is believed to be the most sensible approach at this time. This will provide time for both authorities to fully consider the wider alternatives and in Leicestershire's case for it to be considered as part of its countywide accessibility policy review of rural bus services in 2017/18.

A joint Leicestershire and Rutland County Council one off emergency intervention payment to Centrebus is therefore proposed, which would keep the 747 running to its current level of service until January 2018.

We will, with our support, be looking for local communities and parishes served by the 747 to take the lead on working in partnership with Centrebus to secure the future commercial viability of the service when this one off funding contribution comes to an end.

At the current time there is no intention for either authority to fund this service beyond January 8th 2018.

We will write to parishes again soon with a suggested approach on how we can support and facilitate them working with Centrebus going forward.
