Devon County Council has confirmed there is one other change to the Bus 20 Service.

The following changes will take effect from Monday 25th July:

- The service will no longer serve West Buckland, Somerset;

- The 1700 bus from Seaton to Taunton will terminate at Culmstock at 1820 and not carry on to Wellington and Taunton.

There are no other changes and the service will continue to be supported exclusively by Devon County Council.

Parish Council

Several parishioners have contacted me about Bus No 20.  Somerset County Council is withdrawing its subsidy from the service.   

I have contacted Somerset County Council who has told me . . . 

There is only a slight change to service 20 as a result of the withdrawal of our funding, and this will only be implemented in the summer once the Colleges have broken up. The change is that West Buckland will be removed from the route, the service will continue to Wellington and Taunton.

Fuel poverty in Devon is above the national average, with 1 in 5 rural households classed as fuel poor in the county. In recent years there has been a focus from central government to reduce fuel poverty by making grants available, however increasing fuel prices have meant that numbers in fuel poverty continue to rise.  Fuel poverty disproportionately affects older households, and rural districts of Devon where the housing stock is older and incomes are generally lower. In Devon 5,934 households (19%) spent more than 10% of their income on heating their homes – the benchmark of fuel poverty.  Source: Devon County Council Healthy Housing Needs Survey 2012
