Welwyn Hatfield residents are being asked for their views on wheelchair-accessible taxis in the borough.

The borough council said currently none operate in the area, and the opinions collected will be used to inform policy ahead of a formal consultation.

Councillor Fiona Thomson, executive member for public health, said: “Taxis are used by many of our residents, especially by people with limited mobility who are most in need of a door to door service.

“We want to make it much easier for people in wheelchairs to use taxis which are designed and tailored to their needs.”

The survey can be found at www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/WheelchairAccessibleVehicles. To be sent a paper call 01707 357982.
