We are consulting on our Draft Taxi Licensing Policy.
In July 2020 the Department for Transport issued their revised Statutory Taxi and 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.
In light of the new standards, we have undertaken a full review of our Taxi Licensing Policy and would like your feedback on the proposed changes. To view the details of the consultation and to have your say, please visit Ask Derbyshire.
