We are consulted about changing the criteria for taxi vehicles.

As a result of a number of changes in legislation, but primarily in regard to the Equality Act 2010 we consulted on changes to the Hackney Carriage Terms and Conditions, which would mean that all taxis will be required to be wheelchair accessible in the future.

Currently we don't have any Hackney Carriages (taxis), licensed by Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council, that are wheelchair accessible vehicles.

The survey closed at 5pm on Monday 25 March.

Public Meetings

There were also two public meetings at Campus West, WGC, to discuss the changes:

  • 11am Monday 25 March
  • 3pm Monday 25 March
