Licensing Consultation

Closed 24 Feb 2020

Opened 13 Jan 2020

Overview

On the 12th November 2019 the Licensing and Public Saftey Committee recieved several reports relating to policy changes. A copy of the report and items discussed at this meeting can be found below and also at the start of each survey.

As part of this process we would want to engage with all stakeholders and interested parties, including licensed drivers and proprietors.  

The consultation exercises will commence on Monday 13th January 2020 and conclude at 5pm on 24th February 2020.  There are a number of topics on which consultation is taking place – these are summarised below:

  1. Review of the Taxi and Private Hire age policy.
  2. Review of the current modified vehicle testing policy.
  3. Changes to the policy relating to the granting of new Hackney Carriage vehicle licences.
  4. Proposed changes to the restrictions on tinted glass.
  5. Private Hire signage and livery.
  6. Proposal to licence vehicles annually rather than every 6 months.

We look forward to hearing from you during the consultation period.

Thank you, The Licensing Team.
