The Council's Response to the Cost of Living Crisis

Bearing in mind the powers afforded to councils in the Local Government Act of 1972 (section 137), this council will commit to a range of urgent actions that will support vulnerable people in our community to cope with the unprecedented increases in the costs of energy and the serious fall in living standards.

Bus Transport

Bus transport across the Staffordshire Moorlands is critical to the economic well-being of the district. Rural areas are particularly badly served by public transport and recent changes to routes in the South of the Moorlands specifically, highlight the need to have early notice of changes, and be part of that decision making. The motion moves that Staffordshire Moorlands District Council creates an ongoing dialogue between itself and the main bus operators in the form of a working group, committee or other body to ensure that SMDC is able to influence decision making where relevant to our residents. The officers are to reach out to the bus companies and invite them to an initial meeting to discuss the state of transport across the district and identify any opportunities where the District Council can work to improve targeted routes and find solutions to save routes at risk of threat.
