Closed on
Decided on

The consultation was open from 30 October 2023 and closed at 11:59pm on 6 December 2023. This consultation has now closed and responses received at this point will not be included in the findings report.

Hampshire County Council sought residents’ and stakeholders’ views on proposed changes to the School Transport Policy (previously called the Home to School Transport Entitlement Policy). The School Transport Policy (the Policy) sets out the legal responsibilities that the County Council has in order to provide assistance with transport to school or another education setting for children and young people living in the local authority area.

More details on the proposed changes can be found in the consultation Information Pack. There is also an Easy Read version of the Information Pack.

Feedback has been analysed to inform the decision by the County Council on the proposed changes to the School Transport Policy and how transport assistance is delivered. The findings of the consultation were published and presented to the Executive Lead Member for Children’s Services in January 2024.
