2.1 The Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Environment and City Management approved the delegation of the City Council’s authority to make the byelaws to LC TEC, so that a single byelaw can be created across all the London Boroughs at the request of the LC TEC members, for a pan-London dockless regulatory approach.
2.2 The Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Environment and City Management delegated authority to the Executive Director for City Management and Communities to agree on a final byelaw and to enter into any necessary legal agreements with TfL. In consultation with the Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Environment and City Management where necessary.
3. Reasons for Decision
3.1 The proposed byelaw defines clearly that no dockless operators shall cause or permit dockless vehicles to be placed on any highway or public place, other than a permitted dockless parking space agreed by the Authority or private land owners. Failure to comply with the byelaw will result in prosecution of offending operators.
3.2 The proposed byelaw also states that no dockless operator can offer the hiring of a dockless vehicle other than on terms which prohibit the hirer from leaving the vehicle on any section of highway or other public place other than within a designated ‘dockless parking space’.
