Survey


 Many thanks for the 128 responses to the survey. 

The results showed a very high level of satisfaction with the new service with a wide range of users and uses.

It was gratifying to have comments such as "life changing", "reduced use of car travel", "greater sense of confidence in being able to stay living in the village for longer". 
 

Costings

We are still awaiting installation of the RTI signs and also the final costs from the County Council.

Project costings for the simplified design have been agreed with a cost of £105,000 including a contingency of £10,000.

Extra costs may be incurred on improving footpaths to provide safe access to the new bus stops.
