Taxi licences

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The taxi licencing service are currently experiencing a high volume of applications.

Applications which have expired or due to expire imminently are being prioritised. There is a delay with other applications however they will be dealt with as soon as possible. We ask for your patience in not chasing your application. We have received it and will deal with it and be in contact once processed.

  • For all private hire and hackney carriage enquiries, we process applications according to the expiry dates, this may mean that you will receive contact from us closer to the time of the expiry (unless you require a DBS)
  • For all Licensing Act and Gambling Act enquiries, we will contact you for payment within the timeframe permitted under legislation.
  • If your email is a complaint about safeguarding, that will be allocated to an officer and you will be contacted within 48 hours.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Temporary Off Sales Permission

The Business and Planning Act 2020 has temporarily modified the Licensing Act 2003 to provide an automatic extension to the terms of most premises licences which currently only permit the sale of alcohol for consumption on the premises to allow the sale of alcohol for consumption off the premises. The provisions are temporary until 30 September 2021.
