It will impact residents of Debden and those who need to get to Debden. This will especially affect people who don’t have cars and who depend on public transport including school children, elderly people, people with mobility issues and parents with young children.
To stop these proposals, you can:
1. Sign this petition set up by  Debden Resident Heidi Chung:…/save-the-167-bus-route
