Richmondshire District Council

Review of Anti-Social Behaviour Public Space Protection Order (PSPO)

Following the introduction of a PSPO in Colburn and Brough St. Giles on 19 March 2018, the law states that a formal review is required before it expires on 19 March 2020. A consultation has been launched to find out the views of the local community and interested bodies on whether the measures contained in the PSPO need to be extended, varied or discharged. Closing date: Monday 17 February 2020.

Draft Taxi and Private Hire Licensing Policy consultation

Our taxi and private hire licensing policy sets out the council’s general approach to regulating taxi and private hire services in the Richmondshire District. Our primary concern is public safety and, through this policy, we aim to both reduce potential risks associated with taxi and private hire services and provide transparency and consistency for anyone with an interest. Our existing policy was published in 2016 and following a recent review, we are now proposing changes to ensure it remains current.

We are now consulting on those changes and would really like to hear your views. After the consultation closes the council's Licensing Committee will consider all responses received and any other relevant information to decide whether to make any changes to the draft policy. We hope to publish a revised policy in June 2020. Closing date: Sunday 22 March 2020 at midnight.
