Denbighshire school transport policy relaxed


Denbighshire Council looks set to relax its rules on free school transport from next year.

A committee backed plans to introduce a more lenient policy on Thursday after complaints from parents and councillors.

The policy review followed a legal challenge two years ago from parents of Ysgol Brynhyfryd children who stopped getting free taxis to the Ruthin high school. The council later restored services on an individual basis.

Among the changes proposed are more relaxed guidelines on transport to feeder schools and a more transparent approach on the use of pick-up points on hazardous routes in the county.

The policy is due to be ratified by the council in September, before being introduced twelve months later.
