Request for Information - 2017/15383 - Complaints about hire bikes

 

I refer to your request for information received on 08/08/2017. Please see
the information below in response to your request: -

Please provide details of number and content of the 'flood' of complaints
the council says it has received regarding 'leave anywhere' hire bicycles.

 

The Cabinet Member (Community Services) received a number of verbal
complaints from elected colleagues but as they were passed directly to him
verbally the numbers were not recorded. The Council took a pro-active
approach in removing o-bikes, those who phoned in were simply informed the
Council is actively removing the o-bikes that have been deposited on the
highway and the calls were therefore not recorded

I hope this information meets your needs. If you do not understand the
information provided or wish to discuss anything further, please feel free
to contact me and I, or another member of the team will be able to assist
you.
