Consultation on CCTV in licensed vehicles (Taxis)

Craven District Council is conducting a consultation to seek the views, of the trade as well as members of the public, and a wide range of partner agencies and stakeholders, regarding the implementation of CCTV within Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Vehicles.

Council elected members have agreed in principle to make CCTV mandatory in Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Vehicles in Craven from 1st April 2020.

However the Council is keen to consult members of the public, members of the taxi trade, and other organisations, before taking a final decision on implementation.

The consultation is open to the public and the closing date for submitting consultation responses is 8th December 2019.

Paper copies of the consultation are available from the Council Offices; alternatively you can respond online: www.cravendc.gov.uk/cctv
