The National Bus Strategy

Extract from the proceedings of the Environment, Transport & Sustainability Committee meeting held on the 22 June 2021, together with a report of the Executive Director for Economy, Environment & Culture.


29.1         Councillor Lloyd stated that the bus service played an important role in the city and officers had worked closely with Brighton Bus Company to review the provision and ensure it was able to meet demand. He noted that a feasibility study on franchising had been requested and a report would be brought to committee in due course.


29.2         Councillor Appich stated that franchising was a preferred option which required a change in legislation, and she looked forward to seeing proposals for a park & ride scheme. She also felt that there was a need for a community bus service to support all communities in the city.


29.3         The Deputy Mayor stated that the report had been referred for information and moved that it be noted.


29.4         RESOLVED: That the report be noted.
