I have called on Stagecoach bosses to scrap appalling and inexcusable plans to cut dozens of local bus services.
Stagecoach last week launched a consultation over the changes which will affect Dover, Deal and villages across the area. Some would lose their only regular service.
The firm has given residents just two weeks to lodge their views, with the consultation period ending on June 26.
These changes are appalling and totally unjustified. There are reductions for almost every village, just when we are getting more investment and housing all over the district.
People are quite rightly fuming. The two-week window for consultation – and the vague wording in it – is unwarranted, inexcusable and unacceptable.
I have written to Stagecoach's area director making my views known in no uncertain terms and asked for a meeting as a matter of urgency.
To have your say on the proposals by Monday, 26 June 2017, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org quoting "Dover Area Proposals" in the subject line. Or you can write to Stagecoach at Stagecoach South East Dover Area Proposals, FREEPOST RTLL-RCTZ-AKAK, Canterbury, CT1 2SY.
