Consultation process

The e-scooter trials have been enabled by the Department for Transport, who expanded the ability of council to undertake trials in response to COVID which has led to limited ability for consultation. Regular contact with key City stakeholders including the Hospital, police force and Universities, has ensured opportunities and challenges of the scheme have been discussed and resolved where necessary.

Making Representations: Please contact the report author for further details.
