Taxi licensing policy consultationPublished Monday, 08 March 2021
Wyre Councils revised taxi licensing policy has been published for consultation.
The Government published its Statutory Taxi and Private Hire Vehicle Standards document last year. Licensing authorities must have regard to the standards document when setting and revising their policies and procedures and the Government have indicated that authorities are expected to implement the new standards unless there are compelling local reasons not to. Wyre Council has reviewed its current policy against the new standards, and is now consulting with stakeholders.
The consultation is open until 2 May 2021. Please visit our consultation page to view the draft policy and make your comments.
All comments received by the 2 May will be considered by the Licensing Committee when they meet to finalise the policy on 29 June 2021.
