As part of my additional responsibilities as Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport, I was pleased to attend a bus forum meeting arranged by Cllr Julie Tucker at Evesham Town Hall on Thursday 2 March 2023. Thank you to everyone who attended.

I spoke for around 30 minutes, and took around 45 minutes of questions. We covered a lot of ground from community transport to Demand Responsive Transport and beyond.

I wish to correct the record following this meeting. Towards the end of the session, I answered a question about walking and cycling improvements and incorrectly said that the Evesham Local Walking & Cycling Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP) had been brought back to the table to be progressed following a funding announcement. In fact, it is Droitwich, Pershore, Malvern Hill, Worcester City and Bromsgrove that will be progressed by the County Council as part of a recent funding announcement. I have enquired on the status of Evesham and will post an update once I have more details.

  1. Dear Mike,
    I was so interested to hear of this, as I am really tired of seeing buses in Pershore running around virtually empty- at taxpayers and the planets expense. Major reason is that the bus timetables are no longer available, no one knows how to find buses at convenient times, esp elderly like me who have the time ( and need) to use them.
    I have been monitoring your blogs, and wish I had known of this meeting!
    Would you be able to ring me please, if you are allowed to, as I am very concerned, and being O A P find long emails v difficult.
    If you can kindly indicate times when this would be I can be available if I can.
    Janet Thay [redacted], text would do.
