Kingsland Parish Plan Clarifications
With reference to statements in the Parish Plan on page 6 (paragraph 6), page 19 (section 6.1) and page 20 (section 6.2)

Herefordshire Council is currently consulting on changing the basis for charges for the school bus to Wigmore school. Rather than the bus being free for those in a school catchment area as it is now, the Council are proposing it changes to only being free for buses to a child’s ‘nearest school’. In the case of Kingsland the ‘nearest school’ is Earl Mortimer in Leominster (even though it is not the catchment school). So, if the plans go through, parents in Kingsland will have to pay for each of their children using the bus or take to their cars to get their children to Wigmore, or even change secondary school to avoid charges. Herefordshire currently charges £660 per year per child to those who pay.
You can have your say by responding to the consultation which is open to all members of the public and closes on Oct 18th. This is the web link with details of the Council’s plans and how to respond online or in writing:- https://www.herefordshire.gov.uk/education-and-learning/schools/school-and-college-transport/school-transport-policy-consultation/
Talk of saving money (and risking lives) by shutting Kingsland Fire Station is being considered. The effect, not only on Kingsland but throughout North Herefordshire, cannot be overestimated. All in North Herefordshire are urged to sign the petition which is at Markham’s Garage, the Post Office and elsewhere in Kingsland. You can also keep up with the campaign on the Fire Station’s Facebook page here.
See here for details of the “consultation process”. on the Hereford and Worcester Fire website.
The closing date for the consultation is 10 January 2014.
