Sorry, Iris, you’ll have to wait under a tree for a bit longer
No cash for bus shelter in Honiton Bottom Road, but town clerk has taken photographs of the site - in case money becomes available in the future.
Although it is not currently in a financial position to provide a bus shelter in Honiton Bottom Road, the town council has not ruled out supplying a facility at some point in the future.
Town clerk Lyn Hargood has visited a site near Mill Water School and taken photographs - ahead of a review of bus shelter facilities in Honiton.
Resident Iris Danning has been calling for a bus shelter in Honiton Bottom Road for the past 10 months. Her request was recently put to members of the council’s policy and finance committee, when it was decided that a review should be carried out and recommendations made about potential sites for new shelters.
In a letter to Mrs Danning, Mrs Hargood said: “At a cost of �3,000 to �4,000 per bus shelter, I am sure you will appreciate that this is a decision they cannot take lightly as it would have a big impact on the precept paid by Honiton residents.”
