Local Bus Journeys 25th March 2020

As a result of the COVID-19 situation, our bus companies are facing a very difficult situation as passenger numbers fall drastically alongside staffing issues and of course only key workers travelling. In response, bus companies are planning to reduce their services, inevitably with less than the usual notice period. They are doing this in discussion with the County Council and we are supporting them in obtaining short-notice authorization from the Traffic Commissioner. Some community transport groups have closed down, others have altered their services and some have been able to offer other assistance to people in need such as delivering essential items.

At present the best advice for anyone having to undertake essential travel is to check with their local bus company or community transport group before travelling.

Kind regards,

John Richardson-Dawes,

Principal Transport Co-ordinating Officer,

Transport Co-ordination Service,

KERSWELL DOWN STORM DAMAGE

After the recent very bad weather KKPC will be conducting work within Kingskerswell Down woodland to ensure as many of the paths remain open.  This work will be signed, however, due to a number of fallen trees and broken branches in and around pathways, the Parish Council would ask that visitors take great care when walking through the wooded areas, and they do so at their own risk.
