Do you know if these vehicle sales relate to normal fleet renewals or is the operation winding down?

Suzy's message here: http://angliaandthamesvalleybusforum.com/index.php?topic=6768.msg56251;topicseen#new, giving up contracts and selling vehicles seems bad :(

That's a shame if it's what I think it is.  It looks like paragraph 8.12 from the business plan in http://www.east-northamptonshire.gov.uk/downloads/Item_6_-_Report.pdf

It also calls into question the brave idea that community transport groups could step in to pick up the pieces where councils fail to provide essential services.
