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.
City councillors were asked to review four different options to the plans.
- 1 Flats plan above town Tesco store
- 2 Careless charity shop donors cost Devon Air Ambulance money
- 3 'Rally for the Raleigh' - plan launched for community to buy village pub
- 4 Plan B measures to be scrapped across England
- 5 Volunteers help build new shed for Mill Water School
- 6 Solomon goes to great lengths to help local food bank
- 7 Exciting Competition Day at the Budleigh Bowls Club
- 8 Citizens Advice: how to read your gas or electricity meter
- 9 Exmouth history: Iron Age and Celtic settlements
- 10 16-year-old among arrests in Christmas drink and drug driving clampdown
