Licensing Committee

Licensing Committee membership and meeting information

East Renfrewshire Licensing Committee is currently reviewing its policy regarding the licensing of taxis and private hire cars with reference to accessibility criteria for disabled users. As part of this process, the Committee wishes to hear the views of the trade (drivers and booking offices) and users of such vehicles, whether disabled or otherwise.

The Committee is particularly interested in hearing views regarding the current availability of wheelchair accessible vehicles, current and potential demand for them and any other information which will assist it to determine appropriate numbers of accessible vehicles within its licensed fleet.

The committee is also taking this opportunity to consider wider disability related issues including the carriage of guide and assistance dogs.

Please submit any evidence or views you wish to express on these matters to the Council, no later than 5pm on Friday 1 March 2024. Comments can be sent by e-mail to brian.kilpatrick@eastrenfrewshire.gov.uk or by post addressed to, Licensing Enforcement Officer, East Renfrewshire Council, Eastwood Park, Giffnock, G46 6UG
