Ingatestone and Fryerning Parish Council has been received a prestigious award as part of the Local Council Award Scheme

New local transport consultation

Parish council chair, Cllr Jeater reported at December's full council meeting that he had received correspondence from a resident with feedback about the First Bus 351 service.

The resident has written to First Bus with concerns about an apparent reduced service. First Bus responded in regard to the reduction of services citing a 'commercial decision' and additional factors, including a lack of drivers.

Since the meeting, Transport East has launched a public consultation on a new regional transport strategy. IFPC urges residents to respond to this consultation to reaffirm the importance that bus services have in our local communities. The consultation opened on Thursday 2 December 2021 and will run until Sunday 30 January 2022. 

If you would like to find out more about the consultation and see how you can read the strategy and respond, please visit Public Consultation- Transport East.
