A recent decision was taken by Staffordshire County Council to remove the subsidy funding from the bus services which support Audley Parish. This will see the Monday to Friday evening services stopped and also the Sunday & Bank Holiday service stopped – from April 2018. As a result the Parish Council are consulting with parishioners to gauge views on the Parish Council funding the gap, through the use of the Precept. This will see an increase of around 35p per week per Band D Council Tax property if the Parish were to fully fund the lost services.
All parishioners are invited to attend a public meeting on Thurs 11th January 2018, 6.30pm at Audley Pensioners Hall, Church Street (by the Doctors Surgery) to discuss their views on the proposals.
