Hackney Carriage Demand Study

The consultation is open until 30th June 2019.

Background

Licensed Vehicle Surveys & Assessment (LVSA) has been commissioned by Maidstone Borough Council’s licensing department to undertake a Hackney Carriage Demand Study. As part of the study, LVSA are undertaking consultation with a range of stakeholders, including members of the trade, members of the public, Council departments, political representatives, rail and bus station operators, hospitals, licensed premises, police, chamber of commerce, tourism and elderly representatives, user group representatives and locality representatives. We would be grateful for any comments and views you may have on Hackney Carriages within the Maidstone Borough Council area.

It is important, for this study, to distinguish between different types of licensed vehicles. For the avoidance of doubt, Hackney Carriages may be flagged down or Hailed in the street, as well as hired at a taxi rank and obtained through advanced booking. Hackney Carriages have a ‘TAXI’ sign on the roof. Other licensed vehicles are Private Hire Vehicles often known as mini-cabs. Private Hire Vehicles may only be hired through advanced booking.

How to have your say

Please send your comments to LVSA.co.uk by Sunday 30th June 2019.

These can be detrimental issues or indeed beneficial factors. All information provided is treated as confidential.
