BDC Taxi Licensing Policy Consultation


Bolsover District Council is consulting on its Draft Taxi Licensing Policy. In July 2020 the Department for Transport issued their revised Statutory Taxi & Private Hire Vehicle Standards. The guidance outlines a minimum core standard which local Councils are expected to adopt in relation to Taxi Licensing. The expectation from the Department for Transport is that these standards should be adopted as a minimum standard unless there is a compelling local reason not to.   In light of the new standards, Bolsover District Council has undertaken a full review of their Taxi Licensing Policy and would like your feedback on the proposed changes.   

Why are we Consulting

A link to the Statutory Taxi & Private Hire Vehicle Standards, a table of the proposed changes to the policy and a copy of the Draft Taxi Licensing Policy can be found below. The policy is split into Drivers, Vehicles and Operators for ease of reference.

If you would like to make any comments regarding the draft policy please e-mail, or send your comments by post to Licensing Consultation, Bolsover District Council, District Council Offices, 2013 Mill Lane, Wingerworth, Chesterfield, S42 6NG. Please use the reference BDC Full Taxi Policy in the subject of any correspondence.

Consultation responses will be considered by the Council’s Licensing Committee before a final decision is taken to amend the policy.

 PLEASE NOTE: A separate consultation exercise is currently underway to introduce a new mandatory CCTV Policy. Should this policy be approved by the Council the relevant sections of the policies will be updated to reflect the policy change.
