Review of Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Licensing Policy

This consultation is now closed

Start date: 4 December 2020

Closing date: 29 January 2021

Areas Affected

  • Lichfield District wide

A review of Lichfield District Council’s Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Licensing Policy will take place between 4 December 2020 and 29 January 2021.

The Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Licensing Policy was due to be reviewed earlier this year, but unfortunately due to the Coronavirus pandemic we were unable to have effectively carried this out. In July 2020 the Department for Transport released Statutory Taxi & Private Hire Vehicle Standards. The Department for Transport expect local authorities to implement the recommendations unless there is a compelling local reason not to. 

The proposed amendments to the policy are available here. We would welcome your comments and feedback on the policy and the proposed amendments by emailing our Licensing team. A feedback form has been provided should you wish to use this.

The consultation will close at 17:00 on the 29 January 2021. Any comments received after this time unfortunately will not be considered.
