PLANS to change the funding of concessionary public transport which could affect Topsham's bus and train-user have been supported by Exeter City Council.

The local authority announced this month they would back a Government consultation document to alter the system.

Peter Wadham, lead councillor for sustainable development and transportation, said for many months the council was concerned funding, as part of the current travel scheme, was grossly unfair.

A report was given to the council's economy scrutiny committee last Thursday, June 11, which summarised the government's consultation document on the future of concessionary travel.
