Rockingham Council Increases Trader’s Permit Fee while Addressing Concerns about Hireable E-scooters
The Rockingham Council recently announced an increase in the trader’s permit fee while addressing issues surrounding the hireable electric scooters in the area. The council has been receiving a lot of complaints and concerns about the e-scooters, and they have been actively working on solutions to make the streets safer for the community.
Trader’s Permit Fee Increase
In an effort to generate more revenue for the council, the trader’s permit fee has been increased. The fee hike will affect local businesses that offer services such as food trucks, markets, and other mobile vendors. According to the council, the increase was necessary to help with the costs associated with servicing the streets and providing necessary support to traders.
Addressing the Concerns about E-scooters
In addition to the trader’s permit fee hike, the council is also addressing the concerns surrounding the hireable e-scooters. Some of the issues identified by the council include the safety of riders, pedestrians, and other road users, as well as the issue of abandoned or illegally parked scooters on public property.
Currently, the council is working on a series of measures to address these concerns. For example, they are considering implementing a “Slow Down” campaign aimed at riders, asking them to take extra care when riding on busy roads or sidewalks. The council is also exploring ways to enforce rules around where the scooters can and cannot be parked, to help minimize the impact on local communities.
