The fees charged for taxi and private hire licence applications, vehicle testing and sundries have been subject to the usual annual review. It was necessary to propose an increase of 5% in most cases, in order to reduce the current service subsidy.
The proposed fees for taxi Licensing for 2018-2019 were approved at a meeting of the District Council's Governance and Resources Committee, on 18 January 2018.
As required by law, the taxi trade have been notified of the proposed increase to the fees; and the fees will be advertised in a local newspaper, on the District Council's noticeboard and website for a period of 28 days.
A complete list of the fees for licence applications/inspections and sundries relating to taxi and private hire licensing can be viewed here.
Any comments in respect of the proposed fees should be made to the Licensing Manager, by Friday 9th March 2018.
