Type of issues to be addressed under this heading:

Return number Response
1 Maintenance of bus service
2 Preservation of the bus service
3 The bus service to be maintained - it's a life line for many
4 Preservation of bus service should be a priority, and may need consideration to be given to additional growth and affordable housing.
Ways should be sought to improve the walkability of Puddledock Lane, without making it more drivable.
No need for a pavement along Sutton Road, but a 20 mph limit could be considered.
5 Maintain the present Bus Service.
6 Speed limit.

8 Chronic! We have a narrow lane through the village (single vehicle width in places) without pedestrian or cycle way.
e.g. I was cycling into the village along Sutton Road and a bus and cars were blocking the way trying to pass each other. A pedestrian let alone a cyclist could not get past. The top of the bus made contact with and scraped past a lamp post damaging both.
We should not be surprised when the bus company announces that it can no longer provide a village service. What about the many village residents who depend on the bus service?
There seems to be a complete disconnect between our planning department and the highways authority. Our planners are giving permission for more housing developments with little if any regard to the desperate need for off road parking.

53 1) Transport - Please keep the bus route into Sutton Poyntz
54 It is important to keep some form of public transport as there is an elderly population who may rely upon this when they are unable to drive.
55 Maintaining a bus service is desirable for those without their own transport and particularly some older folk for whom Preston Rd is a difficult walk.

73 Full size buses use Sutton Road this can be a problem with parked cars. Is it possible to use small size feeder buses?
74 Certainly needs to be included within the Plan.  The current bus service is under constant threat and the service level reduces a little every year.  A village without a bus service is a good way to help it die.  Traffic is a whole other subject and my comments in the preceding sections say what I feel.
