Here are some of the issues we have consulted on and their outcomes. See all outcomes

We Asked

What you thought about the signage and advertising on private hire vehicles: are there too many signs on private hire vehicles or not enough; are they too big or too small; do they provide the right information; what do you think about their design and colour?

You Said

Responses were mixed with the majority favouring the existing colour scheme used for BCC signage and in general the current signage used. The exception being that the majority of respondents did not believe semi-permanent door signs to be necessary.

The majority of respondents did however feel that private hire vehicles should display the name and contact details of the company its driver is working for in the form of a magnetic sign. 

In relation to advertising on private hire vehicles responses were more split.  

We Did

The results of this consultation will form part of a report which will be heard and approved by members at a future Licensing and Public Protection Committee before the signage requirements can be amended.
