The licensing team is responsible for the administration and enforcement of a wide range of licences, permits, consents and registrations.

It is strongly recommended that you familiarise yourself with our policies and procedures and licensing fees before submitting any application. 

Local authorities have a duty to maintain certain registers of licences issued, these public registers can be viewed in our licensing registers section.

If you need to meet in person with a member of the team you will require an appointment. We are unable to guarantee an available officer for anyone turning up without a prior appointment and access to a staff member may not be possible in these circumstances. Please contact us if you wish to make an appointment.

Hackney carriage fares review

It has been previously notified that comments were received to the public consultation regarding the proposed increase to hackney carriage fares and that a further meeting of the Amber valley Borough Council Cabinet was required to review those comments and determine the fares increase.

This meeting has now been held and it has been resolved to introduce the fares increase in line with the original proposal.

The licensing authority will be issuing an updated table of fares in due course however in the meantime a downloadable version can be found under 'useful downloads' at the following link

Note: you must have your taxi meter re-calibrated to the new fares prior to being lawfully able to charge the new rates.
