Major improvements to the network of buses supported by Lancashire County Council are to be considered by the council’s cabinet next week. The council has already committed to make an extra £1m available to bus services, increasing the budget from £2m to £3m. A report to the cabinet meeting recommends boosting the council’s support for buses, with proposals for a number of new routes and changes to improve existing tendered bus services. The aim is to restore lost links between communities, particularly in rural areas where people who do not drive or own a car rely most on public transport, increase the frequency of services on routes with greater demand, and stabilise the network by supporting routes which might otherwise disappear. County Councillor Andrew Snowden, lead member for highways and transport, said: “A good public transport network is vital to support our economy, ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to access work and education. It also plays a vital role in helping people to carry out everyday tasks such as doing their shopping, visiting family and friends, and getting to health appointments. “To develop these routes I have invited all county councillors to offer their input on behalf of the communities they represent and raise any issues which they are aware of, and we’ve worked hard to make sure these proposals make the most impact with the resources available. “This extra funding will make a significant difference by supporting and supplementing the commercial network to link communities which might otherwise have no or very little public transport, and help to ensure transport connections across Lancashire are as effective as possible. “We are also proposing to hold discussions with bus operators about how we could improve services in some areas where we think the best option is to enhance an existing commercial service to better serve communities.” If agreed, detailed timetables will be developed, and all county council-supported bus services put out for competitive tender, with the revised services proposed to start from 10 December. There is proposed to be no change, or only minor adjustments to timetables, for 15 existing county council tendered bus services. The routes proposed to be improved are as follows: Services in East Lancashire – Burnley, Rossendale, Pendle and Ribble Valley • Service 2 Clitheroe – Low Moor Circular.

Say you’ve seen it in The Property Scene November 9th 2017 The Property Scene: 01200 404 929 9 Your whole home controlled with just a few swipes on your phone – that’s the grand promise of the ‘smart’ or connected home. From heating that warms the house when you’re on your way back and adapts according to the weather forecast, to front-door locks, lights and security cameras that you can control and check from afar, it certainly sounds promising. But how much will it cost you, and is it really worth it? You may have heard the term the ‘Internet of Things’ or IoT in relation to smart home automation. This is the buzz phrase many manufacturers are using to mark the rise of connected products – everyday household gadgets made ‘smart’, usually by using your wi-fi to connect to an app on your smartphone or tablet, allowing you to control them remotely. Many items around the home, from lighting to heating, are now being built with smart capabilities. This includes: Appliances, such as ovens, washing machines and fridge freezers Energy and lighting, such as thermostats, radiator valves, and light bulbs and switches Security measures, such as cameras, motion sensors and alarms Health products, including fitness trackers, bathroom scales and air purifiers New smart gadgets launch almost daily, but sifting out the genuinely useful developments from those that are over-priced and ultimately useless can be tricky. There’s a lot of competition in this relatively young market, and that can mean a rocky ride for the customer. Buy too early and you may end up with an expensive toy with a short shelf life. How much do smart gadgets cost? Many smart home ‘starter kits’, which tend to include a main smart hub and around four or five connected items – be it motion sensors, smart lights, cameras, radiator valves or smart plugs – cost between £100 and £200. But the risk is the escalating costs as you build on it to get what you need. Some smart home products claim to actually save you money and pay for themselves with the savings. Smart thermostat manufacturers claim that by enabling you to control your heating all the time, you will use less energy to heat your home and therefore save money. How easy is it to install smart home gadgets? Most smart home gadgets are designed to be installed easily yourself. You’ll need to have a wi-fi connection first, and ideally the stronger it is and the nearer you are to it when you set up, the better. Each device is slightly different, but generally the process involves downloading an app and then connecting up the device. But, invariably, technology is often not as straightforward as we would like it to be, especially if you have a few devices you need to connect together. Many manufacturers offer support services to guide you through any problems or issues. And the benefit of a smart product is that it can often tell you what’s gone wrong. How simple is using a smart home system? Using a smart product should be simple – once you’ve installed the app you just use that to control it or monitor your home. But because this is all so new, there are some teething issues, including a lack of ongoing support when a start-up company suddenly folds or is bought by a larger one, incompatible devices or, worst of all, security breaches. I’ve seen Google Home and Amazon Echo advertised on tv, what are these? These rival smart home speakers are essentially hubs - they work as a central point to connect different appliances and gadgets to each other and your phone. But the difference with these is that you can control anything you connect up by using voice commands, as well as swiping on your phone. They’re promoted as your very own ‘live-in assistant’ - playing your favourite music, dimming lights or adjusting your heating as you tell it to. Like with other smart hubs, they will only connect up with compatible gadgets, so there will be limits to what you can do. It will also mean costs could spiral as you need to buy more to connect with them.
