Issue Summary

Provision of bus shelters in Melksham Forest area


Latest Update

16/04/2018 08:53:46 The Town Council wish to seek the views of local residents and business operators via a mail drop. This item will come back for discussion at the next meeting.

14/02/2018 12:48:16 Response from the Town Council: At the Asset Management meeting last night members resolved that I write to local residents to seek their views on the re-installation of a bus shelter in Church Lane before making a decision on a way forward.

CATG Action / Recommendation


There is no shelter provided at ANY of the bus stops in Melksham Forest North of Sandridge Road. The stop with the highest usage is that in Church Lane Chapel VetsDance School. It is served by 33 bus services every weekday with fewer Saturdays but even some on Sundays. Bus stops elsewhere with far lower usage and fewer buses are provided with shelters and are being considered to have those apparently adequate shelters upgraded.
