Rear loading wheelchair accessible vehicles (WAV) for use as Hackney Carriages within the Vale Royal Hackney Carriage zone consultation

​This consultation is now closed.

The Council has received a request to consider licensing rear loading wheelchair accessible vehicles as Hackney Carriages. Hackney Carriages are available for immediate hire from a rank or by hailing them in the street. Wheelchair using passengers would still be loaded and carried while remaining in their wheelchairs but would be loaded into the rear of the vehicle from the road.

Taking part in the consultation

The outcome of the consultation exercise will be reviewed by the Licensing Committee on the 20 March 2018. The results of this public meeting will be published shortly after the meeting.
