Westmorland & Furness Council is calling for communities to help shape spending plans for a £1.7 million funding pot to put the wheels on more bus services across Westmorland and Furness.

To ensure that services supported by the latest funding meet the needs of communities and lead to well-supported provision, the Council today launches a consultation offering residents, businesses and visitors the opportunity to shape spending plans.

Work has already started to devise a list of 35 suggested bus routes the monies could fund.

Full details about this can be seen at W&F to receive £1.7 million to provide more bus services.

The consultation offers the opportunity for people to comment on the routes and positively impact services from years to come.
