There will be a new bus shelter at the White Horse Health Centre, after Westbury Town Council agreed to match funding from the Community Area Transport Group.

The new bus shelter will replace the current shelter, which had caused a number of complaints as it is an open cantilever design, offering bus passengers no protection from wind, rain or cold.

Councillors approved match funding of £3,500 to remove the current bus shelter and replace it with a more enclosed shelter at the full town council meeting on Monday.

They also agreed to move the current shelter to Westbury Leigh, replacing a dilapidated old shelter originally put there by a private company to sell advertising space.

Councillor Sue Ezra said: “There is no argument that we need to replace the bus shelter at the White Horse Health Centre.”
