Hampshire County Council is asking for residents’ and stakeholders’ views in a consultation on budget reduction options which could affect subsidies for public transport and street lighting.

The County Council is looking to make savings through changes to financial support for public transport services and is also asking for views on proposals to switch off some street lights for two or more hours during the night.

You can complete the consultation here.

The core funding for the operation of community transport schemes, such as Dial-a-Ride, Call and Go and Minibus Group Hire Schemes, are not included in these proposals and the consultation does include questions on proposals to change the discretionary discount for holders of older persons’ bus passes on some community transport services.

The consultation closes at midnight on Sunday 5 August 2018.
