North East Derbyshire District Council is consulting on its Draft Taxi Licensing Policy. In July 2020 the Department for Transport issued their revised Statutory Taxi & Private Hire Vehicle Standards. The guidance outlines a minimum core standard which local Councils are expected to adopt in relation to Taxi Licensing.
The expectation from the Department for Transport is that these standards should be adopted as a minimum standard unless there is a compelling local reason not to.
Why we are Consulting
In light of the new standards, North East Derbyshire District Council has undertaken a full review of its Taxi Licensing Policy and would like your feedback on the proposed changes.
A link to the Statutory Taxi & Private Hire Vehicle Standards, a table of the proposed changes to the policy and a copy of the Draft Taxi Licensing Policy can be found below. The policy is split into Drivers, Vehicles and Operators for ease of reference.
Consultation responses will be considered by the Council’s Licensing Committee before a final decision is taken to amend the policy.
This consultation is now closed.
