Actually, they are taking comments via Facebook. I'm not sure how applicable school transport debate is to us in Amersham, but it's here for those that have opinions.

In true Bucks CC style it's not easy to find. Here's their FB page.

And from that, there's an odd link to a strangely formatted page.

This seems to have come about as a consequence of the feedback from the consultation they ran earlier in the year, as linked here.

It might well give the students directly affected the chance it have their say, although I suspect the average teenager will not be a 'friend' of Bucks County Council on facebook!

web 2.0 :) erm OK.

It's an horrific phrase, I know. Dreamt up by people in marketing to try to fool the public into think the web has been reinvented or had a major upgrade in some way. It's rubbish of course, but I used it in an ironic way in this case.
