The West Yorkshire Combined Authority, which consists of Bradford, Calderdale, Leeds, Kirklees, Wakefield and York, recognises that the role of Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Drivers is a professional one. Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Drivers transport our most vulnerable persons and are often the first point of contact for visitors to each authority.
The overriding requirement of the Council when carrying out this function is the protection of the public and others who use (or can be affected by) Hackney Carriage and Private Hire services.
We would welcome the views of the public on the proposed changes. You can view the proposed policies by clicking the links on the right of this page, and you can share your views using the online surveys linked from the right.
