Essex County Council recommendations

As a result of carrying out the survey of potential users of the proposed services, we would suggest that a number of key modifications to the routes should be considered in going forward:

Alteration of Route D to incorporate the East Ham Estate (potentially instead of serving West Horndon for example) and investigation of timetabling implications.

Investigate further the logistics of interchanging between the proposed. routes and also the 498 service.

Consideration of whether Routes A and C could both be accommodated by re timetabling and/or using a separate bus. These two routes were both popular, however it was originally envisaged that one or other could be implemented as they currently run as extensions to the 351 service from Chelmsford.

Consideration of re timetabling or re routing Route B or Route A to serve Kelvedon Hatch in addition to or instead of Doddinghurst.
