The fees charged for taxi and private hire licence applications, vehicle testing and sundries were reviewed in November 2018 and were approved at a meeting of the District Council's Governance and Resources Committee, on 17 January 2019. It was necessary to propose an increase of 5% for most of them, to reduce the service subsidy at that time.
As required by law, the taxi trade will be notified of the proposed increase to the fees in respect of Vehicles and Operators. The Council is not required to consult on all of the other fees, but it is seen as good practice to notify the trade in advance of introduction..
The proposed increase to the fees will be advertised in 2 local newspapers circulating in the area. it will also be advertised on the District Council's website and the outdoor noticeboard at the District Council Offices in Matlock, for a period of 28 days.
