Petition update 1 from the council, 01 February 2016, while petition was still open

More details from petition creator

The savings from the proposal to merge the 46 and 72 bus services have not been outlined but whether the route taken is via Compton or Peasmarsh, is unlikely to have a significant financial impact. Any savings would not make up for the negative effect on the individuals and small businesses that rely on the 46. We suggest the route taken continues to turn left onto the B3000 (from Binscombe) instead of the newly-proposed right turn via Peasmarsh, which is already serviced by other bus routes. This would ensure that the Street and Down Lane in Compton continues to receive a regular public bus service.

The new proposal would mean that staff (including voluntary and low-paid) may be unable to get to work. This will affect Watts Gallery, Watts Studios at Limnerslease (newly opened), Watts Chapel, BUPA Care Home, Lemongrass Restaurant (newly opened), the Withies Inn, other small businesses and the Club and Village Hall. Some residents will be unable to access shops and places of work in Godalming and Guildford.
