Draft Taxi Licensing Policy consultation
Craven's last policy was reviewed in November 2012. The new policy has been written to strengthen the licensing regime and give applicants and licence holders a much more detailed overview of their responsibilities either when making an application or when licensed. The main aim of the new policy is to ensure that Craven has a robust policy in place designed to safeguard the travelling public who use the taxi trade and ensure that we can say that the taxi trade in Craven is one of the best in the country when it comes to being ambassadors for the District.
