The Chief Executive submitted a report asking Committee to determine whether there should be any variation in the fees charged for a private hire operator’s licence.
It was noted that, at the annual taxi meeting, an operator had requested that the Council review operators’ fees, as he considered they were too high and made reference to their role as merely a booking agent.
Officers had carried out a review, which included consideration of operators’ responsibilities and a comparison of the Council’s current fees against those set by other local authorities (taking into account the particular circumstances particular to the Ribble Valley) and they were felt to be reasonable.
RESOLVED THAT COMMITTEE:
Approve that the fees set for the issue of operators’ licences, as set on 31October 2023, be maintained.
