Rejected petition Stop Kent County Council from scrapping Socially necessary bus services.

The government have reduced funding to such a degree that a huge number of Socially necessary bus services are at risk from being axed.
This will impact the county to a huge degree. Please also please bare in mind train services are also at risk across the county.

More details

The local councils against the wishes of parish councils and residents have force through planning applications on the basis that there is infrastructure in place to support a growing population in the county.
To remove these services means the applications have been granted under false pretences.
Cutting the services will impact education, employment and mobility for the elderly and disabled.
It will also put a burden on high wards and environment due to road use,increased emissions.
