Members of the public are invited to have their say on Highland Council's taxi fare review.

The public is being asked for its views on Highland Council's proposals to review the maximum level of charges for the hire of taxis or private hire cars fitted with taxi meters operating under licence of the authority.

The council has a statutory duty in terms of Section 17 of the Civic Government (Scotland) Act 1982 to review its scales for the fares and other taxi related charges every 18 months.

At the Highland Licensing Committee meeting of June 22, Members agreed a draft tariff for public consultation which included no change to any of the current tariffs or extras charges.

The proposed draft tariff would take effect from late October 2021.

A full copy of the draft tariff for public consultation can be found here.

Members of the public are invited to submit their comments about the above proposals by July 27. This can be done via an e-mail to licensing@highland.gov.uk or in writing to: Iain Meredith, Principal Solicitor (Regulatory Services), The Highland Council, Council Offices, High Street, Dingwall, IV15 9QN

All representations received will be considered by the Highland Licensing Committee at the meeting of September 7.
