Rossendale Borough Council

Public Registers

Licensing

Each licensing authority is required to maintain a public register giving certain details of the current hackney carriage and private hire driver licences it has issued.

Section 42 of the Town Police Clauses Act 1847 sets out the requirements of the public register concerning hackney carriage drivers.

Section 51(3) of the Local Government (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1976 specifies the requirements of the public register requirements for private hire drivers.

Also available to view are registers of Hackney Carriage Vehicles, Private Hire Vehicles and Private Hire Operators licensed by the Council.

Sorry, we are still experiencing problems with our public register and therefore it remains unavailable. We are working to resolve this issue. Please contact licensing@rossendalebc.gov.uk for any information you require.

It is important therefore that each register be read with caution and with the date of its last update in mind. For the same reason, the registers are not cumulative and show only the vehicles and drivers licensed at the time of its last update.

Further Information

If the information you require does not appear in the register, please contact the licensing to ascertain whether the information you require is available. Alternatively, a hard copy of the public register can be viewed at the Council offices on request.
