Fees for applications and sundries

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.

It has also been necessary to introduce a new charge for anyone breaking an appointment to sit the Taxi Knowledge Test.  This charge is to cover the re-arrangement costs.

The taxi Licensing fees for 2017-2018 were approved at a meeting of the District Council's Governance and Resources Committee, on 19 January 2017.  As required by law, the taxi trade were notified of the proposed increase to the fees; and an advertisement was placed in 2 local newspapers, and on the District Council's noticeboard and website for a period of 28 days.
