Minimum Licensing Standards consultation (now closed)
A public consultation on our proposals took place between Thursday 8 October and Thursday 3 December 2020.
Following a review of feedback from the consultation and further engagement with the taxi and private hire trade, a final set of policy standards was endorsed by the Greater Manchester Combined Authority on 29 October 2021.
The ten councils were in the process of individually approving and integrating the standards into their existing policies when the Greater Manchester Clean Air Plan and linked Clean Taxi Fund grants were paused in February 2022. This led to some local authorities pausing approval for some of the proposed Minimum Licensing Standards relating to vehicle standards.
A further update on this project will be provided following the review of the Clean Air Plan by Greater Manchester’s local authorities and government, due to conclude in July 2022.
