Minimum Licensing Standards consultation (now closed)
A public consultation on our proposals took place between Thursday 8 October and Thursday 3 December 2020.
The feedback and evidence received is now being considered, so that we can understand the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on Greater Manchester’s taxi and private hire drivers and operators, and take this into account. We are also undertaking the subsequent equalities, air quality and emissions impact assessments, which will be vital to inform future decisions on the final standards.
The outputs of the Minimum Licensing Standards consultation are expected to be reported as soon as possible and no later than summer 2021.
Taxis and private hire services need to continue to play an important role in Greater Manchester’s plans for a fully joined-up and environmentally friendly transport system. We’ll continue to engage and work with the trade as we consider how and when to introduce the standards across the ten local authority areas.
Below are some documents from the consultation:
