We need our local bus service

Pebsham’s councillor Charlie Clark is urging the public to voice opposition to cuts in the bus service.

He fears East Sussex County Council will do this as a result of having to save £63 million owing to “drastic” cuts in funding.

Cllr Clark claimed ESCC has held a consultation and said: “I am opposed to any cuts in local bus services - they have already been reduced in recent years, and there are little or no bus services in Bexhill after 6.30pm. In Pebsham we have only one bus service, and any cut in services would cause a lot of problems for local residents.” He is organising a petition to protect local buses and asks residents to submit views to ESCC.
