Hackney Carriage & Private Hire Handbook Review Consultations

Adur District Council & Worthing Borough Council review of their Taxi Handbooks normally every 5 years but both Licensing Authorities reserve the right to review them at any time that members feel it is required. Both handbooks have been subject to interim reviews in recent years but a full review is now due for both.

The Councils recognise that it is good practice for local authorities to consult widely regarding any significant proposed changes in licensing rules. Any consultation should include not only the taxi and PHV trades but also responsible authorities such as Sussex Police and groups likely to be the trades’ customers. Examples are groups representing businesses such as the Chamber of Commerce, organisations with a wider transport interest such as disability groups (eg Royal national institute for the blind, Guide dogs for the blind, british deaf association, Campaign for Better Transport, Access & Mobility Groups and other transport providers), Minority & Women's Groups, local traders, representatives of the night time economy, local residents groups, other interested parties and of course members of the public were all invited to express their views.

The six week public, trade and authority consultation on the handbooks closed on 26th October 2021 and the Councils would like to thank all those that have contributed. The results will now be compiled for presentation to the respective Licensing Committees for consideration. The dates of the Committee meetings will be announced in due course.
