Hackney Carriage Licences

29/07/2022 - Hackney Carriage Licences

Recommended:  That Council approve a change to the Taxi Licensing Policy in respect of the type of vehicle to which new hackney carriage licences will be issue; those being wheelchair accessible, ‘fully electric’ or ‘plug in electric hybrid London taxis’, and black in colour (as specified in detail in paragraph 25 of the report to Executive), in accordance with Option 1 in the report.


Reason:              To help meet unmet demand for hackney carriage vehicles, particularly from users with a disability, as well as providing a more environmentally friendly and easily recognisable hackney carriage fleet in the city in response to the declared climate emergency and continuing desire to improve air quality.
