FCC - Consultation on School Transport

Post 16 School & College Transport and Benefits Entitlement

This is a consultation document on proposed options to amend the Council’s School and College Transport Policy. (www.flintshire.gov.uk/schooltransport).

The document focuses on two areas of potential policy change - post 16 transport provision and the “benefits” entitlement criteria.

The document provides the Council’s rationale for consultation and provides options for stakeholders to consider.

The consultation will commence on 18 February 2019 and will close on 5 April 2019. The Council is interested in obtaining the views of anyone likely to be affected either directly or indirectly by the proposed options.

Responses received within the consultation period will form part of a report to the Council’s Cabinet.

As the Council’s decision making body, Cabinet will carefully consider the report before making a decision on whether to implement a policy change in the areas identified.
