|Description||Proposed changes to the South Cambridgeshire District Council Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Licensing Policy.|
We have reviewed our Taxi Policy and the proposed changes identified will apply to all Private Hire and Hackney Carriage Drivers, Vehicle Proprietors and Operators holding or wishing to obtain a licence from this authority.
This Authority’s aim is to involve as many people as possible in consultations to ensure that all views are taken on board. We therefore extensively consulted on the recently proposed changes to this taxi licensing policy and we have been really pleased by the level of engagement from both the trade and members of the public. However, further representations were received the evening before Councillors were due to make a final decision and we feel that it is only right that we take the time to consult on these views and revised legal opinion in addition to comments already received during the original consultation period.
Please be assured that any previous comments will be taken into account and it will not be necessary to re-submit your previous response. However, all comments and feedback are encouraged and welcomed.
