Fresh consultation on plans to withdraw discretionary bus passes for children at faith schools in Sheffield is taking place.

A final drop-in session is to be held by Sheffield Council on Thursday at Chapeltown Library from 5.30pm.

Coun Jackie Drayton, cabinet member for children, young people and families, urged parents with questions about the proposals to attend the confidential sessions.

The council is asking parents for their views on withdrawing the passes completely from September or on a phased basis.

It had previously decided to withdraw them, to save £250,000 a year, but the controversial move was later reviewed by a scrutiny committee. A new decision will be made on June 19.
