Bringing a community bus back to Filey

Following a recent meeting in Filey regarding the town bus with resident Sue Cowan, Mayor Jacqui Holden-Banks and Cllr Sam Cross, I wanted to update constituents on what is being done to revive the service.

I completely understand the impact losing the bus has had on my constituents' ability to access medical services and local shops, as well as feeling separated from the community. Following a meeting in March and another public meeting last weekend, we’ve agreed that given the passion for the bus to return we need a similar scheme implemented in the town. Along with the town council and residents, we’re working on a proposal to be put forward to North Yorkshire Council, assessing the feasibility of a new service both logistically and financially.

I will update constituents more as we progress with this campaign.
