Important Taxi Consultation for Derby

February 8, 2019 12:23 PM

In mid-January the Council's Licensing Committee unanimously agreed to a 90-day public consultation on its draft strategy for having lower exhaust emissions from taxis, and an age limit for vehicles.

Liberal Democrats welcome the 90-day consultation period. There are plenty of issues that need to be carefully considered. "We want to see Council officers and the taxi trade work through the issues and come to a mutually acceptable solution that is practical and affordable," said Cllr Ruth Skelton. "We encourage everyone to take part in the consultation. There will be consultation events as well as a questionnaire. We expect that changes will be made to the draft strategy as a result of the consultation responses."
