MID Devon District Council is consulting on proposed changes to its Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Policy.

In September 2023, the Council carried out an in-depth review of its existing policy, with a number of proposed changes identified.

An updated policy has subsequently been drafted with a focus on ensuring it remains fit for purpose and provides a workable, fair and compliant policy for the regulation of the taxi trade in Mid Devon.

The consultation period extends until April 15, 2024, providing an opportunity for the public to share its views on the proposed modifications.

The Council’s engagement platform, Let’s Talk Mid Devon, allows residents to come together, express their thoughts, contribute ideas, and engage in meaningful conversations that directly influence the work of the Council.

Community members can actively participate in a variety of surveys, polls, and discussions that address a wide range of local issues, initiatives, and policy decisions.

Councillor David Wulff, Cabinet Member for Community and Leisure, said: "Our engagement platform, Let's Talk Mid Devon, enables residents to help shape the policies that impact our community. Join us in the conversation as we seek your insights on proposed updates to the taxi policy.

“A number of other council projects are currently open for consultation, including the Crediton Masterplan, a rural services survey, and a petition of the condition of Mid Devon highways to be improved.”
