Residents, businesses and taxi drivers are being asked for their views on new proposals that supports best practice from Hackney Carriage and private hire licence holders
The proposal is to introduce a penalty points system that encourages service improvements without the need for formal action.
It is proposed that a licence holder that reaches a certain number of points would be referred to the Licensing Sub Committee which would consider whether to suspend or revoke the licence.
The proposed penalty points scheme is not intended to be used to deal with more serious offences.
How to comment on the proposals
The proposals are set in the draft taxi points scheme policy and points per offence documents.
If you would like to comment on the proposed scheme, please email your comments to our licensing team.
The consultation closes at 5pm on Thursday 24 September 2020.
