Residents in the Moorlands are being reminded to have their say on the future of school crossing patrols.

Due to unprecedented financial challenges, with a £35 million gap in budget, Staffordshire County Council is considering proposals to no longer fund the school crossing patrol service after September 2019.

Instead, the authority is asking communities and businesses to think about if and how they could fund a local patrol in the future.

A spokesman for the county council said: “Under the current proposals, we would still employ the patrols and provide the training, management and the uniform and interested communities would work with schools to arrange funding.”

Residents can take part in the consultation up until December 31 by visiting the www.snapsurveys.com website.
