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 reflect timescales for switching to ultra low and zero emission vehicles, and consideration of the existing blanket CCTV requirement having to factor in the Department for Transport Statutory Taxi & Private Hire Vehicle Standards from July last year which must be given regard.

We have created a document showing some proposed amendments [PDF, 0.2MB] together with a short rationale.

Any observations were required to be emailed to taxis@scambs.gov.uk by no later than Monday 2 August 2021. Feedback will be considered by the Council's Licensing Committee and Cabinet in September 2021.
