Have your say on Fenland’s taxi policies
Fenland District Council is seeking the public’s views on the licensing of Hackney carriages, private hire operators and licensed drivers in the district.
Last week the council’s licensing committee approved the draft Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Licensing Policy, 2021-2026, for consultation. Now a six-week consultation has been launched, and residents are being invited to have their say.
The Department for Transport recently introduced statutory guidance in relation to this type of licensing in a drive to standardise the taxi and private hire regime nationally – prompting the council, as local licensing authority, to review its policy.
