Review their decision to remove subsidies to the 93 D&G Gillow Heath-Biddulph-Biddulph Moor-Leek bus service. If possible work with D&G to re-think the service, reduce frequency, etc. So that the service still exists and remains viable and can attract a lower subsidy.
Why is this important?
If this bus service loses its subsidy, many residents will be left isolated, with their only means of transport out of the villages of Biddulph Moor and Gillow Heath cut off. It's a vital public service and will impact on people being able to go the the doctors, dentist and supermarket. It will affect people's mental health - social isolation plays a huge role in people's health and well-being. It will also have a negative impact on students wishing to access further education at Leek College.
