Parents urged to have their say over school transport plan
3:00pm Wednesday 9th October 2013 in News
PARENTS are being urged to take part in a consultation on home to school transport.
Essex County Council has set out a series of proposed changes to its policy in a bid to save cash.
Among the potential changes are scrapping entitlement for grammar school pupils from low-income families and restricting choice of free buses in areas where parents can currently chose more than one school.
The consultation runs until Friday, October 25, and due to a high number of expected comments the authority is not responding to individual enquiries.

Further comments can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
