London boroughs have statutory responsibility for street nameplate design, positioning and maintenance. However, TfL has been discussing this issue with LTUC and representatives of the boroughs, and is currently considering recommendations for gathering further information about problems with street nameplates, building on the research carried out for LTUC reported on in 2003 .
