Available for charities and organisations

The Parish Council runs a Community Minibus Scheme under a Section 19 permit.


Section 19 permits are either ‘standard permits’ for vehicles which are adapted to carry no more than 16 passengers (excluding the driver) or ‘large bus permits’ for vehicles which are adapted to carry 17 or more passengers. These permits may be granted to organisations that operate vehicles without a view to profit to transport their members, or people whom the organisation exists to help. Section 19 permit vehicles can’t be used to carry members of the general public.

Each group must join the Council Community Minibus Transport Scheme with only Midas Certified or other suitably qualified drivers permitted to drive the minibus.

If you are interested in renting out the minibus and want to know about the procedures and costs involved, please contact the Recreation Centre on 02380 893603.
