The Council invites public input on proposed changes to its Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Policy.

In September 2023, the Council carried out an in-depth review of its existing policy, with a number of proposed changes identified. An updated policy has subsequently been drafted with a focus on ensuring it remains fit for purpose and provides a workable, fair and compliant policy for the regulation of the taxi trade in Mid Devon.

The consultation period extends until 15 April 2024, providing an opportunity to share your views on the proposed modifications.
