273, 274 and 275 Crosspool to Derbyshire bus services under threat

Bus services from Crosspool to Castleton and Bakewell could be drastically reduced from October 2017.

Derbyshire County Council is considering several options in order to save money, with one of them being to withdraw all county council funding for subsidised buses from October 2017. This means that unless they can be run commercially they will stop.

The Derbyshire County Council-supported services that run through Crosspool are:

The public are being asked to comment on the proposals as part of a consultation, which ends on 24 April 2016.

Primary school places consultation: last chance to have your say

Lydgate Junior school
Lydgate Junior school: no room for expansion

Crosspool’s growing population has resulted in Sheffield city council proposing to permanently expand Hallam Primary School from 60 places to 90 places per year.

The proposal would make the extra places available in all reception intakes at Hallam Primary from September 2015 onwards. The extra capacity is required as the sites of the two Lydgate schools are constrained and those schools are already larger than average.

Residents have until Sunday 8 December to have their say on the proposals at this stage. You can read more about them online and then comment using the following contact details:

Broomhill library and Crosspool mobile library service to be axed

Sheffield City Council has announced that Broomhill library could close within two years unless a community group comes forward to run it.

Mobile library
Crosspool mobile library will be axed

The mobile library service that visits Crosspool is also due to be scrapped.

Under the plans, just 12 of Sheffield’s 28 libraries will be saved, five will become community-led and 11 – including Broomhill and Walkley – will become ‘independent libaries’.

The council is seeking your views on the proposals.
