No need to use a well-trained crow to work out your home to school measurement under the new straight-line system due to be introduced next year - this nifty little tool will do it for you! Just enter your postcode and that of the school.

I'm sure the council will have its own method, but this looks to be reasonably accurate and should give a fair idea of the distance and the difference between the measurements under the two systems.

I've been unusually slow on the whole straight-line thing despite being concerned it'll impact my area badly.

When's it coming in and what impact assessment have Bucks done ?

I tried the link just for "fun" just using the village name rather than a specific street. The distance to our nearest GS by land transport is allegedly 2.27 miles (I think it's slightly more but close enough), however, as the crow flies it is 233 miles :shock: , is the crow going via Bristol? Surely we must be entitled to free home-school transport if BCC change to the new system! (Using a street name the distances are much closer to what I would expect).

I think it must have taken the scenic route! :lol:

I've had some strange results with it but the postcode seems to work OK.
