History of 2018 Changes

As explained in previous communications, the contract for Seaford & District to provide Mondays to Fridays route 231 (Uckfield-Framfield-Blackboys-Heathfield-Broad Oak-Burwash-Etchingham) ends on 31 March 2018. East Sussex County Council will be funding the replacement service and a new contract has been awarded to Compass Travel, having received prices from potential bus operators. Seaford & District will continue to operate journeys on schooldays, which will be renumbered service 331.

The new 231 timetable, as anticipated, will not be as frequent between Uckfield and Heathfield. This is because Seaford & District has been providing additional journeys between these towns over and above the journeys funded by East Sussex County Council. From the beginning of April the timetable will be approximately 2 hourly, with the service between Heathfield and Etchingham remaining similar to the current provision. A copy of the combined 231/331 timetable is attached.

North Wealden Community Transport (‘Wealdlink’) is changing its service 262, though continuing to provide three return journeys between Uckfield and Heathfield on Saturdays. From 7 April this service will continue to/from Hartfield instead of Forest Row, via Maresfield and Nutley. A copy of the new 262 timetable is also attached.
