Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Licensing Policy Consultation

Have your say

North Kesteven District Council would like your thoughts on the licensing of Hackney Carriages, Private Hire Operations and Licensed drivers in the District.

A consultation regarding the District Council’s Hackney Carriage & Private Hire Licensing policy is now underway, and the Authority would like to hear your views. 

The Department for Transport has recently introduced Statutory Guidance in relation to this sphere of licensing, which is a drive to standardise the regime nationally.  As such the Licensing Authority has decided to undertake a formal review of its policy in the light of the newly published guidance. 

Formal consultation on the next statement of licensing policy, which is due to be published in January 2021 is currently being undertaken and will continue until 16th November 2020.

A copy of the consultation document is linked to this page along with a consultation response document.

Any responses can be emailed to the Licensing Team at licensing@n-kesteven.gov.uk or complete the licensing policy consultation response form.
