Review of Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Policy

As a result of the pandemic, it was necessary for the Council to amend how it processed and administered licensing applications, and has reviewed part of the Policy to reflect various changes, and identified where some of the aspects within the policy should be amended to help support the trade and allow for some flexibility.

The changes agreed in September 2021 and November 2021 include an extension to require CCTV installed in all licensed vehicles from March 2021 to no later than March 2023, an extension to age limits for renewal of licences to 9 years, and an extension to all new licensed vehicles to be ultra low or zero emission until December 2023.
