The Licensing Manager submitted a report for Members to consider a proposed increase in the tariff charged by the Chesterfield Borough Council Hackney Carriage Table of Fares, as requested by the hackney representatives on the Taxi Consultative Committee meeting on 17 October, 2017.
The requested increase would be around 10% or 2% per year, as the hackney fares had last been increased in April 2012. The proposed increase sought to balance the licensed hackney carriage owners and drivers need to maintain acceptable living standards and affordability for members of the public.
Hackney Carriage Representatives had been invited to the meeting but none attended.
* RESOLVED –
That the proposed increase in the tariff charged by the Hackney Carriage Table of Fares be approved,subject to the required consultation period of 14 days.
