Surrey County Council Consultations

In addition to the consultation for the Recycling Centre, Surrey County Council are also conduction consultations on the topics below.

The feedback questionnaires are available online at surreycc.gov.uk/consultations. You can also pick up a hard copy at your local library or children’s centre or request one via text to 07860 053465 or by calling 03456 009009. The consultation closes on Friday 4 January 2019, so not much time.

Given that the consultations affect some vulnerable people who may not have access to the internet, please think about your relatives and neighbours who you think might be affected by the proposals and help them to get their views expressed.

The topics are as follows

Concessionary bus travel

The proposal for disabled bus pass holders is to:

  • Move to the national statutory level for free travel between 9.30am and 11pm on weekdays and free travel at weekends and on public holidays.

The proposal for companion bus pass holders is to:

  • Move to the national statutory level and withdraw free travel for companions


Family Resilience: Children's Centres

Doing things in a new way will mean changes to the services that children, young people and families use at the moment. The Council has looked first at children’s centres and then will look at youth work and youth centres.

The Council believes that if families get additional or intensive support, things will get better for them and they won’t need specialist services. Everyone who works with them will come together to find the best way to help a family and try to stop problems before they happen.


Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

The County Council is consulting on how to strengthen support for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), at a time when the amount of funding available is not keeping pace with the growing levels of need, such as autism.

The council is consulting on a strategy to shift resources more towards early identification of children's and young people’s needs and providing more early support closer to home and wherever possible in mainstream schools and settings.


Libraries and Cultural Services

The Council is asking for views on five principles that form a strategy which they believe could inform proposals for transforming libraries and cultural services in Surrey:
