Rear Loading Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles Report
Urgent Decision - Not in Forward Plan
Details for Agenda Sheet
Report of the Assistant Director of Regulation & Enforcement
Implementation Date (not before meeting on)
Wed 12 Jun 2019

1.1       The Licensing and Public Protection Committee does not currently have a policy in respect of wheelchair accessible vehicles (WAVs) used for private hire and so any prospective proprietor must attend a Licensing Sub Committee and seek individual permission for each and every vehicle he wishes to licence.


1.2       All hackney carriages are required to be WAVs, but they are required to be larger purpose built vehicles, with built in side loading ramps and a safety screen to separate drivers and passengers.


1.3       The report asks members to consider if they willing to consider the introduction of new policies which would facilitate the licensing of rear loading  WAVs for the purpose of private hire and whether in light of the requirements of the Clean Air Zone (CAZ) they would consider relaxing the current standard for .hackney carriage vehicles to allow similar rear loading taxis to be licensed in Birmingham.
