Previous Vibrant Voices conversations have highlighted the fact that some services provided by the Council are over and above what we are required to do by statute and we are examining these closely to consider whether people want this to continue. One of these areas is school transport where, unlike many councils, we go beyond what we need to do in terms of the legislation.
Over the next few months we will be engaging with interested individuals and organisations to look at our model and whether there are changes we could make in terms of cost and efficiency. This review is timely given the current debate on climate change which our young people are keen to influence.
Further information on our review and how you can make your voice heard as we develop our proposals will follow in due course.
