Taxi and Private Hire Policy Review

A consultation is now underway for our revised Taxi and Private Hire Policy. If you wish to comment on any of the proposals, please complete the consultation form or email your comments to licensing@torridge.gov.uk. The deadline for submitting comments is Friday 8 October 2021.

The Department for Transport (DfT) published its Statutory Taxi and Private Hire Vehicle Standards document last year.

Licensing authorities must have regard to the standards document when setting and revising their policies and procedures and the Government have indicated that authorities are expected to implement the new standards unless there are compelling local reasons not to.

Torridge District Council has reviewed its current policy against the new standards and is now consulting with stakeholders.

The Council has also reviewed other aspects of the policy to ensure it brought up to date.

The consultation is open until Friday 1st October 2021.
