Norfolk Bus Cuts Planned

Sixteen bus services in Norfolk are to lose subsidies from the County Council as it looks to save half a million pounds. It will mean fewer services on those routes, with journeys in the evenings and on Sundays among the trips being lost.

The county council had put the routes out for consultation, but has not altered its original plans as a result and is set to agree the cuts when it sets its budget next month.

If the budget is agreed at full council on February 13, the changes will come into effect from Thursday, April 12.

Among the routes affected are:-
  • Sanders 5. Holt - Cromer - Mundesley - North Walsham. Fewer Sunday journeys from October to May.
  • Sanders 5A. North Walsham - Coltishall - Spixworth - Norwich. Fewer Sunday journeys.
  • First 6,7. Belton and Bradwell - Great Yarmouth. Fewer evening (after 7pm) journeys.
  • Anglian 581. Beccles - Burgh St Peter - Great Yarmouth. Wheatacre, Burgh St Peter and Aldeby to be served by alternative pre-booked transport.
