Parish Council Meeting

Since the Parish Council meeting on 18th November 2017, all the parish councillors have individually decided to resign from the Parish Council. The Chairman will stay in post until the end of November and the Parish Clerk has given notice of her resignation as from 1st December 2017. Therefore, the Neighbourhood Plan has been put on hold until new councillors and a parish clerk have been appointed. More »

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.

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.
