Essex County Council has announced plans to cut support for the 250 and 251 bus services from Monday to Saturday, creating an 8.00pm stay-in Waltham Abbey curfew for anybody who uses a bus.
The county council consultation closes on Monday 3rd May. Make sure you have your say:
In the County Council elections 325 Waltham Abbey residents, most of whom have never met me, voted for the Green Party and I to represent them on Essex County Council. That’s a 356% increase on the 89 votes we won in 2013 and shows that there is space for green policies in Waltham Abbey.
