Hackney Carriage Vehicles - Review of Table of Fares pdf icon PDF 62 KB

Annual review to set tariffs for hackney carriage vehicles

Additional documents:

Minutes:

The Senior Land Charges and Licensing officer submitted a report which sought member’s consideration of the current table of fares, which are reviewed annually.  The last variation of the table of fares was 1 June 2010.

 

Members were asked to;

 

a)  Retain the table of fares as existing

b)  Change the table of fares and decide to what level

 

Members noted that the trade had been consulted and two responses had been received. In addition two late responses were received which were circulated to the Licensing Committee.

 

Recommended: That the Council be requested to consider that the current Table of Fares remains unchanged at this time. If economic circumstances change and a request to review the table of fares is received from a member of the trade before the annual review is due, the Licensing Committee would consider the request.
