Taxi Consultation

Consultation of the Department for Transport’s “Statutory Taxi and Private Hire Vehicle Standards"

Why we are consulting

This consultation seeks feedback on Gedling Borough Council’s proposals to update its policies, conditions and procedures in line with the Department for Transport’s Statutory and Private Hire Vehicle Standards published on 21 July 2020.

As a number of the Standards put forward by the Department of Transport are already in place at Gedling, we will only be consulting on those areas that would require a change to the existing policy and conditions.  The Council must have regard to the requirements of this guidance and should follow the recommendations unless there is a good reason not to. 

There is an additional question in the consultation relating to the condition of hackney carriage vehicles carrying a top sign which we would also ask you to complete. Please note this is unrelated to the Standards.

Please answer either yes or no to the questions and any reasons for your decision can be entered in the comments box for each question.

This consultation closes on 9 December 2021.
