Hackney Carriage Fares Discussion pdf icon PDF 109 KB

This report invites Members to discuss the current fuel price levels in respect to the current agreed fare chart and make appropriate recommendations.

Additional documents:


The report of the Director of Central Services and Deputy Chief Executive provided a background to the request by Members for an additional meeting of the Licensing and Appeals Committee to discuss the current fuel increases and to consider the current fare chart levels that were agreed on the 26 January 2022. 


During discussion, concern was raised regarding the increasing price of fuel and market volatility and the subsequent impact on the taxi trade.  Consideration was given to the implications of a further increase in fares to service users, particularly following the increase in the cost of living.


RESOLVED: That the flag be increased to £4.00 and that the flag charge be reviewed at subsequent meetings if the price of fuel fluctuated to either below £1.50 per litre or above £1.90 per litre.
