Following a number of requests for bus shelters by residents I approached the Parish Council to seek their help securing three in Downs Ward (The Parish Council is responsible for the maintenance of shelters).
After confirmation HPC would support the project I approached First Group and Stagecoach to identify the most used stops. You may also recall an article about this in my newsletter and on this blog.
After further support from County Councillor Marge Harvey who was able to secure the funding from HCC and also a commitment to maintain them for 5 years I was delighted to see that they were installed a few weeks ago and just in time for winter. Thank you to the team at Horndean Parish Council for chasing this and also to Cllr Lynn Evans who spent many hours in meetings about funding, location and then installation.
