County consultation on transport and youth services

Buckinghamshire County Council is running public consultations on its budget proposals for transport and youth services.

The key proposals for transport are: cutting subsidies for Sunday bus services; switching off street lights in residential roads between midnight and 5.30 am (this won’t affect Stoke Poges – our street lights are provided by the Parish Council); road safety and travel education to be concentrated on BCC’s website with more local involvement and working more with local communities to develop walking and cycle routes.

The main change in youth services is withdrawing funding for staff at County’s 27 youth centres and relying on volunteers to take on the work. The proposals allow for existing buildings to be retained and offer some flexibility for meeting local needs. The nearest youth centres to Stoke Poges are at Evreham, Burnham and Gerrards Cross.

Both consultations are open until 31 March. You may access the proposals and the questionnaires online here.
