Have a say on bus services
The county council is working closely with local bus operators to come up with bold plans to improve public transport – and encouraging more people to use it.
The Government has pledged £3 billion to help progress these plans across the country – and Leicestershire is aiming to secure a fair share of the funding.
However, to secure this funding, the council must develop a Bus Service Improvement Plan (BSIP). The council needs input to help it develop the plan.
It wants to find out what people think would improve local bus services and what would encourage them to use local buses more.
It would like to hear from people who already use buses, those who currently don’t, as well as from public, private and voluntary organisations.
There’s a questionnaire at www.leicestershire.gov.uk/bus-strategy-survey for people to have their say. The closing date is http://newtonandsons.com/scope/oh228u22671Igh2i8386g/ Friday, 30th July.
East Goscote Parish Council is looking to recruit an office assistant to help the Clerk handle its administrative and financial affairs. You will work from the Council Offices but may need to be available to attend occasional evening meetings of the Council throughout the year.
Dog fouling can become a problem this time of year when evenings draw in and dog owners may miss their dog fouling.
The Parish Council provide many bins all around the Village and the Library sell excellent dog bags at a very competitive price.
If you see a regular problem where a dog owner is not picking up after their dog, please report the issue on the link below.
