Stroud District Council - Consultation on Common Standards for Taxi and Private Hire Licensing in Gloucestershire
Date of consultation: Tuesday, April 13, 2021 - Tuesday, July 6, 2021
A joint consultation by licensing authorities across Gloucestershire has been launched to consider common licensing standards for taxi and private hire services.
Currently there are six different taxi and private hire licensing policies with each licensing authority setting its own local standards. Having one ‘common standard’ would mean the same high licensing standards would apply anywhere in the county
The proposed common standards for Gloucestershire focus on safeguarding the public and relate mainly to driver, operator and vehicle licence holder suitability.
