For over a year now, my colleague Cllr Darren Fower and myself have been working to secure a bus service for local residents living in and around the Manor Drive area.
Sadly, the Tories at the Town Hall, are dragging their feet. They are trying to say that when the overall development is complete, then they will look at starting a service.
I for one do not think this is good enough.
With a number of young families, retirees and households on low incomes. I believe it is totally unfair for them to go without, even the most basic of bus services.
Especially, when we already have two bu shelters!
To date, we have raised questions and submitted motions at meetings of Full Council, and we will continue to push for action, no matter how reluctant the Conservative controlled City Council are.
Given the intention to build two new schools at this location, I for one (as well as Darren) think the sooner we have a bus service the better.
Please let me know what you think, by posting a comment below!
