School Transport Review
Cabinet will consider an information and update report setting out
recommendations from the Council’s Education & Youth Overview & Scrutiny
Committee on school transport when it meets on Tuesday, 21 June.
The Education & Youth Overview & Scrutiny Committee has reviewed the findings
of its Task & Finish Group on school transport and is recommending that Cabinet
approve their recommendations. The Task & Finish group itself considered a
report from independent consultants that could have seen, in some cases, the
removal of free discretionary transport and an increase in transport fees for
Flintshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Education, Councillor Chris
“Cabinet will be receiving a short information report updating on the
considerations of a Scrutiny Committee Task and Finish Group considering
education transport provision in the County.
It is important to confirm and assure communities that there are no current
plans to change transport policy.”
