401 Bus Service – Cancellation of Service

The Parish Council have been made aware of the potential cancellation of the 401 Bus Service from Uttoxeter to Burton.

We have raised our concerns with the Bus Company and Derbyshire County Council Director of Environment and Transport, Claire Brailsford.  The Bus company Midland Classic has now been taken over by Rotala Passenger Transport (operating under the name of Diamond Buses).  We have written to Simon Dunn the CEO.  Kate Kniverton (Griffiths) MP for Uttoxeter and Burton is also championing the cause to retain the service.  Please see letter below.  We sincerely hope this decision will be reversed.
