County council grant aims to reduce household waste

Have your say

COUNCILLORS have voiced concerns over bus services at a scrutiny meeting.

It comes as four petitions have started in Gosport over First Bus’ recent changes.

Councillor Bob Forder is chairman of the overview and scrutiny committee.

‘There have been four petitions on this subject in Gosport,’ he said.

‘On the part of the bus companies there seems to be a move to reduce the number of infrequent services that visit remoter parts of the borough.’ He added firms appear to favour more frequent routes that visit major places, such as the Eclipse service in Gosport and Fareham.
