To paper seeking authorisation for the establishment of a Home to School Transport Member Working Group.
Portfolio Holder – Councillor Peter Butlin
Councillor Wallace Redford (Portfolio Holder for Transport and Planning) reminded Cabinet that as part of the Budget approved at Council on 7 February 2023, it had been agreed to set up a Member Working Group on Home to School Transport, with a focus on demand and cost implications. The proposed Terms of Reference were appended to the report and nominations had been sought for Members to sit on the Group.
Councillor Tim Sinclair commented on the work that the Budget Working Group had undertaken on this subject which had identified a number of potential workstreams. He looked forward to considering each of these workstreams further and sharing the recommendations in due course.
1. Approves the Terms of Reference for the Member Working Group on Home to School Transport, as set out at Appendix A to the report; and
2. Authorises the Strategic Director for Resources to establish and initiate the Working Group.
