WinACC welcomed the opportunity to comment on the proposed redrafted licensing policy for Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Vehicles and sent a formal response.

We also welcome the steps Winchester City Council are taking to remove the rule that seems to result in unnecessarily large vehicles. We would also like to see a range of measures  that would reduce the level of pollution attributable to taxis  and private hire vehicles, so that Winchester will stand a better chance of meeting minimum standards of emission by 2020.

We are pleased that the City Council plans to refer to its Air Quality Steering group the parts of the proposed revisions that will affect air quality.
