The Committee received a report proposing reconsideration of the recent decision to amend the Vehicle Standards Conditions prohibiting the use of roof signs on private hire vehicles. 


The proposal was to allow the original Condition (as set out in paragraph 8 of the report) to stand, pending a report being submitted to a future meeting of this Committee once further consultation had taken place.


            RESOLVED that


(a)  it be RECOMMENDED TO COUNCIL that the Vehicle Standards Condition agreed on 13 July 2017 relating to the prohibition of roof signs, be varied to allow the original Condition as set out at paragraph 8 of the report to remain;


(b)  consultation takes place to inform a decision as to whether to further modify the Vehicle Standards Condition regarding roof signage on private hire vehicles and that Officers make a further report in the forthcoming year;


(c)   Officers be requested to collate any complaints regarding the use of roof signs following the variation recommended at (a) and present a summary in the further report recommended at (b).
