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 include an extension to require CCTV installed in all licensed vehicles from March 2021 to no later than March 2023. Additional proposed amendments such as timescales for switching to ultra low and zero emission vehicles will be considered by the Council's Licensing Committee and Cabinet Leader later in the autumn.
We have created a document showing some proposed amendments [PDF, 0.2MB] together with a short rationale. Feeedback was sought until 2 August 2021, and all responses were put before the Licensing Committee.
