Lewes district taxi licensing guidance consultation

  • This consultation has now ended - the consultation report can be downloaded below.

Between Wednesday 1 August and Wednesday 26 September 2018 Lewes District Council carried out a public consultation over its revised Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Licensing guidance. The updated guidance over which we consulted takes into consideration changes in legislation such as the Deregulation Act 2015 and the Equality Act 2010.

We invited comments from residents, drivers, operators and other stakeholders on the draft ‘Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Licensing guidance’. 

Latest update

Following our recent consultation and implementation of the 'Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Licensing Guidance 2019', we will be carrying out a further public consultation over one element of the guidance: the proposed implementation of Dual Private Hire and Hackney Carriage Drivers Licenses in the district.

Until this second stage consultation has concluded, Lewes District Council has put a hold on its implementation of converting all Driver licences in the district into Dual Private Hire and Hackney Carriage Licenses.

We will be in touch let you know you as soon as the consultation has opened with details of how to have your say on this part of the guidance.
