Review of Private Hire Conditions

From: 03/04/2017. To: 03/04/2017.


On 16th March, Rossendale’s Licensing Committee resolved to commence a consultation exercise on the revision of the Council’s Taxi Licensing Enforcement Policy, and conditions relating to private hire vehicles, drivers and operators

The draft conditions are attached to this letter, and your opinion is sought on these.

Specifically your thoughts would be welcome on; 

  • First Aid kits
  • Fire extinguishers
  • The use of trailers
  • Commercial advertising on vehicles

It is important that the consultation process invites comments from organisations who may be affected by current and future taxi policies, as well as Rossendale’s licensed trade.  Rossendale Council welcomes consultation responses from as wide a range of interested parties as possible.

Please note the consultation is open until 26th May 2017.  Any comments received after this date may not be considered as part of the review.

All responses should be returned to with the subject heading “Consultation Response”
