Following a public consultation carried out earlier this year, our General Licensing Committee will consider the proposed changes to our Joint Taxi Licensing Policy at their meeting on 24 June.
We are very grateful to all those who took the time to respond to the consultation and provide their comments on the proposed changes. All of the comments made have been taken into consideration when creating the final version of the policy.
You can now read the report on the consultation and the appendix to the consultation report. You can also view the details of the committee meeting including the full agenda reports pack which includes the final draft of the proposed policy.
The proposed changes include the introduction of a new tariff – at this stage, we have not put forward a specific level for the tariff. If Committee decides that we should introduce the tariff, we would then ask hackney carriage proprietors for their views on setting the new tariff. Any proposed tariff would be advertised before being introduced (in accordance with section 65 of the Local Government (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1976).
The consultation ran from 10 February to 24 March 2021 and asked people what they thought about the proposed changes to our Joint Taxi Licensing Policy. It was available for public comment and was also sent to licence holders, all local authorities in Oxfordshire and neighbouring local authorities, and all those registered on the council’s corporate consultation database (including residents, businesses and organisations)
