Licensing and Regulatory Affairs Committee – 25 July 2022

 

Item 6 – Review of Hackney Carriage Tariff

 

A deputation was received in respect of this item from Mr Stephen Wade, Managing Director of Radio Taxis.

 

The Committee considered a report by the Head of Environmental Health which presented the details and outcome of the public consultation on the Hackney Carriage Tariff and invited members to consider whether an increase in the tariff would be appropriate.

 

Members noted that, at their own request, the Taxi Trade has not had an increase in tariff for several years as it has been keen to maintain an affordable service to the residents of Fareham.  However, due to the increasing cost of living, it was strongly felt that an increase would be appropriate this year.

 

In discussing the level of increase in the Hackney Carriage Tariff, members felt that it was important to pay high regard to the level of increase requested by the Trade, as they are best placed to understand what will work best for their industry. The Committee was therefore supportive that the Tariff be increased in line with option ii) as outlined in paragraph 7 of the report.

 

In discussing the proposed amendments to the Tariff Card, as outlined at paragraph 16 of the report, the Committee felt that no extra charge should be made to customers paying their fare by card but felt that it was reasonable that in the event of a journey including a toll or congestion charge, these should be added to the fare.

 

RESOLVED that, having considered the responses received from the consultation, the Licensing and Regulatory Affairs Committee:

 

(a)   considers that an increase in the Hackney Carriage Tariff is appropriate; and

 

(b)   recommends to the Executive that: 

 

                          i. the Hackney Carriage Tariff be increased to £3.00 pull off plus 20p for each succeeding 170 metres;

 

                         ii.the Tariff Card be updated to state that no extra charge may be made for making payments by card; and

 

                       iii. the Tariff Card be updated to state that any toll or congestion charge may be added to the fare. 

 

This item was considered at item 9(1) of the agenda.

Policy & Resources Scrutiny Panel – 11 July 2022

 

Item 6 – Capital & Treasury Management Outturn 2021/22

 

The Panel considered a report by the Deputy Chief Executive Officer on the Capital and Treasury Management Outturn 2021/22.

 

RESOLVED that the Panel recommends that the Executive endorses the Capital and Treasury Management Outturn 2021/22 report when it considers it at its meeting on 5 September 2022

 

This item was considered at item 11(2) of the agenda.
