Members of the public and those involved in the taxi trade are being asked to comment on some potential changes to the joint taxi licensing policy for South Oxfordshire.
South Oxfordshire District Council (SODC) is responsible for licensing private hire (minicab) vehicles, drivers, and operators and hackney carriage (taxi) vehicles and drivers. It wants to know what people think of a new draft taxi licensing policy which sets out how it proposes to regulate taxis and private hire vehicles.
The new draft policy aims to promote the highest possible standards to keep the public safe. It includes measures to make taxis safer, changes to help tackle the climate emergency – a key priority – and further alterations which take new licensing legislation and guidance into account.

The consultation will run for six weeks to Wednesday 24th March 2021.
