Minutes:

The Head of Regulatory Services and Community had submitted a report to recommend amendment to the emission standards for Hackney Carriage Vehicles licensed by this authority.

 

The Licensing Officer introduced the report which proposed that the transition from age limits to emissions based standards begins sooner than previously agreed (January 2020). The proposal had been initiated by the local taxi trade  and would mean that  investment in vehicles with lower emissions levels could take place sooner than would otherwise be the case and, thus, allow more time to recover the cost of investment.

 

The General Purposes Licensing Committee resolved to:

 

1.Approve the recommended amendment to the approved emission standards for Hackney Carriage Vehicles licensed by this Authority; and

2.Agree that such proposals be recommended to Council for adoption.
