Save Our Coasthopper!

This is a temporary post – I’m happy to use our website to publicise a very important series of consultation meetings.

Personally I can’t think of a single thing that’s more important to the economic wellbeing of the North Norfolk coast than the Coasthopper bus service (apart from things like sunshine and birds, which are beyond our control). I’ll be at the Wells meeting –  if you are a local business, resident or visitor please do come to one of them


I received notice of the meeting via our local AONB group:

Consultation meeting to talk about the Coasthopper bus service

The county council is consulting now about our budget plans for 2014-17.  One of the proposals is to “Reduce our subsidy for the Coasthopper bus service” by the sum of £150,000 over two years.  The full consultation can be found here

We are holding three public meetings along the North Norfolk coast so we can give some explanation about why this is proposed,  listen to views and answer questions and encourage people to respond to the consultation, which closes on 12 December.  Your local county councillor has also been invited.

We would like to explain some details about the service: how many people use it, how much it costs to run, ideas for future operation.  I do hope that your parish will be represented and you will be able to publicise the meeting.
