Council wants views

Derbyshire County Council is launching a consultation on proposed changes to transport for children and young people.

Residents are being asked for their views on changes that will save the authority £700,000 a year.

A proposed new policy has been drawn up which covers, transport to school and other places of learning, transport for children aged 16 and over, travel to and from school and short breaks for children and young people with disabilities and transport for children in care.

Schools will be encouraged to take part and families of children with special educational needs will receive letters telling them how to give their views.

People can view the policy online and add their opinions by visiting the council’s webiste at
