The Conservative-run Hampshire County Council are proposing to withdraw school crossing patrols unless their cost is picked up by schools or possibly Town/Parish Councils.

This comes as the County Council plans an extra £140 million of cuts. The scrapping of School Crossing Patrols would cut an estimated £1.2 million. With schools facing drastic cuts and most town and parish councils not having the resources to maintain school crossing patrols, it is likely that most will be lost.
