Refund of fees for hackney carriage vehicles, drivers and operators due to the impact of Covid-19.

Queries have arisen in terms of fees for hackney carriage vehicles, drivers and
operators, and whether if licences are surrendered (due to implications of Covid-19)
the Council will refund fees.

Fees in this instance are locally set, and are substantial in terms of their cost. The proposal is that if an individual wishes to surrender a licence until its expiry, due to concerns over transporting passengers etc., and then they re-apply, the Council allow them the pro-rata fee (according to the licence period remaining) off a future licence application (for the same licence), if made in the 2020/2021 financial year.

Decision type: Non-key
