Consultation on proposals to change street lighting, supported passenger transport services and the concessionary travel scheme in Hampshire

Lighting

Hampshire County Council is asking for residents’ and stakeholders’ views in an eight-week consultation on options for applying budget reductions to subsidies for public transport and street lighting.

This consultation opens on midday on Monday 11 June 2018 and will close at midnight on Sunday 5 August 2018.

The County Council is seeking to make savings through changes to financial support for public transport services. Feedback from passengers will be carefully looked at, alongside data on passenger journeys and the cost of providing individual journeys or services.

The core funding for the operation of community transport schemes, such as Dial-a-Ride, Call and Go and Minibus Group Hire Schemes, are not included in these proposals.

This consultation does include questions on proposals to change the discretionary discount for holders of older persons’ bus passes on some community transport services.

The County Council is also asking for views on proposals to switch off some street lights for two or more hours during the night.

This would mean that some areas of the county would have no street lighting for a period of the night time.

We will publish the results of this consultation on this website. The findings from the consultation will be presented to the Executive Member for Environment and Transport, for consideration when making decisions, later in the year.
