This is the message from Surrey County Council
Surrey County Council is inviting you to provide your thoughts and opinions on proposed changes to Surrey County Council’s Home to School/College Travel and Transport Policy.
The Council is reviewing its home to school/college travel arrangements to ensure we continue to deliver our statutory responsibilities to meet the travel needs of children and young people to access education. We are also seeking to improve outcomes for children and young people by promoting independence and preparation for adulthood.
Your feedback will be used to inform the Council’s decision in early 2020 on a new Home to School/College Travel and Transport Policy.
No doubt a bit like all the feedback you gave to inform them of the proposed closure of children’s centers? Information and feedback that was shredded and mostly ignored.
Surrey CC ticks the box marked – “you have been consulted” and then it does what it intended in the first place?
The survey should take around 20 minutes to complete. The closing date for this consultation is midnight 15 December 2019.
Public Engagement Events
Eight Public Engagement Events will be held as part of this consultation. At these events, representatives of the Council will talk through the detail of the consultation, whilst also listening and responding to feedback and questions to those in attendance. We encourage anyone with an interest in the delivery of Home to School/College travel and transport to attend. Details of confirmed events are listed below including the link needed to reserve a place at each event. The remaining 4 evening dates will be added shortly.
So let us all hope that one of those dates is in the borough of Waverley.
