the council charges parents ₤ 660 a year to the expenses of arranging transport such as specialised taxis and minibuses.Low income households
pay nothing.However to conserve money the council will now
require them to share of the amount-₤ 330. It likewise wants to stop using council set up taxis
and minibuses to transport SEN students to post-16 education and use an Individual Transportation Budget Plan (PTBs)instead.That will imply parents will need to arrange their own transportation with a budget plan
used to them rather than have council authorities take care of it.Parents have argued the PTBs will not be adequate to cover the costs.The council revised its initial propositions following a consultation in which the large bulk of participant disagreed with the changes.Officials stated they wished to reduce the effect of the cuts.There were angry scenes during the cabinet meeting with moms and dads screaming "horrible "as councillors voted through
the new proposals.One guy tossed a council program in disgust and it struck council transport director Anne Carruthers on the back of head.Parents were left furious and tearful after the choice.
