Hackney Carriage Vehicles – Have Your Say

Hyndburn Borough Council currently maintain a limit on the number of Hackney Carriage Vehicles. The limit in Hyndburn is set at 60.

The Council is considering removing the limits on the number of hackney carriage vehicle licences issued given the current climate and the numbers of concerns received from people who are struggling to get the services of a Taxi, particularly late at night.

If the current limit was to be removed and more hackney carriage plates issued, the licences would only be issued to purpose-built or professionally adapted, with certification, wheelchair accessible vehicles.

We would like to know your thoughts on removing the limit. Please help us assess the demand for licensed vehicles so that we can make an informed decision and take part in the survey.
