To set the level of Hackney Carriage Tariff for licensed vehicles in the Borough.
Each year the views of the taxi trade are sought in respect of whether they wish the Council to consider an increase to the taxi tariff. This year the taxi trade indicated they would like to see the tariff increased.
This matter was considered by the Licensing and Regulatory Affairs committee at its meeting of 18 September 2018.
The setting of the tariff is, however, an Executive function and therefore when a request for a change is received the Executive must determine the appropriate level of tariff.
RESOLVED that the Executive agrees, in the absence of objection following publication, to amend the current Hackney Carriage tariff so that:
(a) there is a pull off charge of £2.40 for the first 180 metres (or part thereof) with a charge of 20p for each succeeding 180 metres (or part thereafter);
(b) there is a charge of 20p for each period of 55 seconds waiting time (or part thereof); and
(c) Easter Sunday from 06:00 hours until 23:30 hours be charged at Rate 2
