Dear Editor
I would like to make the following comments in relation to the misleading article yesterday.
I can confirm that there are no plans for any specific routes, particularly rural ones, to terminate at Park & Ride sites. This story has arisen following a less than accurate article that appeared in the Chester Standard last week. There is a reference to the possibility of such a proposal in the Transport Strategy but it is a "longer term consideration" recommended by the consultants to the strategy as meriting further investigation.
Personally I can see a number of difficulties and potential complications (many of which you have already identified) and doubt it being realistic or achievable as currently proposed.
For clarity I repeat the point that there are no proposals considering any specific routes for this long term consideration and certainly non in the Kelsall & Tarvin ward.
I would be grateful if you could make your readers aware.
Regards Cllr Hugo Deynem Member for the Kelsall & Tarvin ward on Cheshire West & Chester Borough Council

Ed:"Many thanks to Cllr Deynem for his comments and confirmation that there are no plans for any specific routes to terminate at Park and Ride sites."
