Consultations underway

Consultation on draft Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Policy


The Council is proposing to make several amendments to its Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Policy, which will change the requirements for licensed drivers and vehicles.
Before making these changes, the Council wants to seek the views of those who may be affected by them. A consultation exercise will run from 20 December 2018 until the 14 March 2019, during which time all views on the proposed changes are welcome. Find out more on our Taxi Licensing Policy page

Have your say on housing

The council has always listened to and worked with tenants to ensure they're receiving a good service which is tailored to meet individual needs. We are constantly looking at how to improve the ways tenants can get involved and have their say on housing.

Forward Plan 

The Forward Plan lists "key" Cabinet decisions likely to be made over the next four months. These decisions may be made by the Cabinet or, occasionally, by individual members or officers of the Council acting under delegated authority. The plan is updated and rolled forward every month. It gives information about the subject involved and shows who will make the decision and when it will be made. The plan also gives information about any consultation prior to the decision being made and advice on how you can make representations.

Planning applications

You can give your views on any planning application on which a decision has not yet been made.
