Devon County Council have notified us of revisions to the Service 3 (Dartmouth – Kingsbridge – Plymouth) to take effect from Sunday 29th October 2017. The revised Monday to Saturday timetable can be found at the link below.
Revised Stagecoach No3 Service
To summarise the information we have received:
The 0645 Dartmouth – Kingsbridge, 1815 Dartmouth – Kingsbridge and 1930 Kingsbridge – Dartmouth will no longer run due to very low usage.
Also due to very low usage, County Council support will no longer retain the 1850 Plymouth – Kingsbridge and 2005 Kingsbridge – Plymouth.
There are some changes for pupils travelling to Kingsbridge Community College. From the Aveton Gifford direction those entitled to County Council-assisted travel will be transferred to a dedicated school coach.
This will leave sufficient capacity for non-entitled pupils using the Stagecoach bus service and paying their own fares to Kingsbridge. From the Dartmouth direction there will continue to be sufficient capacity on the bus service for both entitled and non-entitled pupils, although ticket prices will apparently be increased to cover the cost of providing this.
South Hams District Council have extended the deadline for the Kingsbridge Quay Public Consultation to SUNDAY 23RD JULY 2017.
These proposals have the potential to change the Kingsbridge waterfront forever. Indeed, this is THE MOST IMPORTANT PUBLIC CONSULTATION FOR THE KINGSBRIDGE COMMUNITY IN LIVING MEMORY (did we say that loud enough?) so we all need to sit up,tune-in and respond.
You can view the plans and fill in a feedback questionnaire on the South Hams District Council website: http://www.southhams.gov.uk/kingsbridgequayside
Alternatively you can collect a questionnaire from the reception of Kingsbridge Town Council at Quay House, Kingsbridge TQ7 1DZ (01548 853296). Our opening hours are 9.30am – 1pm Monday to Friday.
Once completed the form will need to be returned to Quay House before the extended deadline. Forms cannot be returned after the deadline.
Kingsbridge Town Council has been notified of significant road works that may affect residents of Kingsbridge for the next week:-
From Friday 9th June until Friday 16th June 2017 – there are going to be road closures from 7pm until 7am on the A381 NORTH PARK CORNER TO A381 TOTNES CROSS, TOTNES.
