We Asked, You Said, We Did

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

We asked

We asked for your views on the potential introducton of a prebooked minimum journey free for Hackney Carriages.

You said

There were real concerns regarding the proposal from people who either use hackney carriages or who are carers for people who use hackney carriages.  Your told us of your concerns around the increased cost associated with a prebooked fare.

Yout said that you felt aggrieved by the proposal for a prebooked minimum fare and their response is that they would use private hire instead.

We did

Results indicated concerns from service users regarding  the request for the introduction of a  minimum fare to be charged for prebooked hackney carriage journeys.

The concerns were re-laid to the hackney carriage trade association who have decided to withdraw their request for a prebooked minimum fare from the current fare review.

The hackney carriage trade association have asked the Council to undertake research with other local  authorities to see if any similar schemes operate successfully in other council areas, so that the matter may be considered in any future hackney carriage fare review

We asked

We asked how far you agreed or disagreed with the Stockport Active Communities Strategy principles, approach, priority groups and action priorities.

You said

There were a total of 94 responses to the online survey. 69.15% of respondents either agreed or strongly agreed with the proposed whole systems approach; 67.03% either agreed or strongly agreed with the proposed principles and approach; 70.22% either agreed or strongly agreed with the identified priority groups and 29.79% respondents felt that there were some action priorities missing. The key themes arising from the survey were that everyone needs to be included and that accessibility and inclusivity is of upmost importance. It is also about getting everyone involved through good communications and leading by example. 

We did

The next stage of development is the implementation plan and that is the stage when we will not only consider in detail what we propose to do to further support and facilitate activity for our priority groups but also consider how to measure impact.

We asked

We asked for your views on the potential implementation of Traffic Regulation Orders (TROs) and associated signage; implementation of bollards and dropped kerbs with tactile paving; road markings; speed limit repeater signs and new school warning signs as part of a Road Safety around Schools scheme to support the Council’s overall strategic ambition to increase the number of children walking or cycling to school.

You said

A total of 9 responses were received with 78% of respondents supporting the proposals.

We did

The proposed scheme was approved at the Central Stockport Area Committee on the 10th March 2022. The TROs are expected to be advertised in spring/summer 2022.
