Community Bus Service

Sulgrave Parish Council is looking into the feasibility of a community bus service to Banbury to try and replace some of the service lost with the withdrawal of the County Connect Service.

We understand that interest has been expressed from Eydon, Culworth and Sulgrave parish councils as well as ourselves. An initial meeting is being set up in the new year to explore what might be possible. The financial implications are, of course, not yet clear but it may be helpful if we point out that funding a parish contribution of say £1,000pa would have increased the annual Council Tax for a Band G property in 2018/19 by £20.20.

A questionnaire has been issued to households in the village to gauge the likely level of support if a service is introduced, probably on one day a week to allow time for shopping etc.. Comments are welcome from parishioners even if you will not be using the service. These should be sent to the Parish Clerk.
