Taxi Forum

The Taxi Forum provides an opportunity for hackney carriage and private hire drivers and operators to come together with members and officers of the council to discuss taxi licensing issues.

The forum is used by officers to present ideas and draft policies to those involved in the taxi trade. It also provides an informal opportunity for hackney carriage and private hire drivers and operators to ask questions of those involved in the licensing of their trade and to make suggestions as to how policy can develop over time. The forum is open to members of the public.

Fare Setting 2018/2019

The process of setting the hackney fares is now underway, and we seek trade views in this process. For this purpose a revised consultation form has been developed following feedback from the Taxi Forum.

This survey is now open until 31st October 2017 and the trade can complete the survey by clicking the below link, by email to Licensing, or by writing to Licensing, Ashford Borough Council, Civic Centre, Tannery Lane, Ashford, Kent, TN23 1PL
