If you're planning to hold a Remembrance Day parade, you will need to apply for a temporary road closure.

Temporary road closures are needed if you plan to block off a road to traffic for an event, such as to hold a street party, fete or procession. In honour of Remembrance Day we are offering a streamlined, free temporary road closure for parades held on Sunday 11th November 2018.

How to apply
Apply using this form and send any paperwork in the post. We've reduced our usual 12-week time limit to give you more time to get your application in, but notices can still take several weeks to process so please contact us as soon as you can. Please also contact Derbyshire Constabulary as soon as possible as you will need their help for blocking off the roads. The deadline for applying for a Remembrance Day Road Closure is Monday 10 September 2018.

What will it cost?
Nothing - we've waived our usual application fee.

Consultation
You must contact local businesses if they may be affected by your parade. We're happy to discuss this with you.

Full Temporary Road Closures
If you're organising a bigger public event or are planning an event for a different time, you may need to apply for a full Temporary Road Closure - contact us to discuss the options as soon as you can.

Please note: Please apply without delay in order for your application to be processed in time, get in touch as soon as you can if you have any questions.

 

We are responsible for granting licences to the proprietors, operators and drivers of Hackney Carriages and Private Hire Vehicles. 

We are part of the ‘National Register of Refusals and Revocations’. This new register will allow licensing authorities to record details of where a taxi driver licence has been refused or revoked. It will allow our licensing team and other licensing authorities to check new applicants against the register. This will help to prevent people found not to be fit and proper in one area from securing a licence somewhere else through deception and non-disclosure. Any driver who has their licence refused or revoked by the council will have their details recorded on the register. Any details placed on the register will be held for a period of 25 years before being deleted.

 

Hackney Carriages may be the traditional London Cab style or may be normal saloon vehicles distinguishable by the fact that these vehicles have a white bonnet and boot/tailgate and will display a roof sign and display a blue and white plate on the rear of the vehicle.

Private Hire vehicles are usually 'saloon type' vehicles and include mini buses with up to and including eight passenger seats and display a yellow and red plate on the rear of the vehicle. Both types of vehicle display a small window sticker of the relevant colour in the windscreen showing the licence details.

The basic difference between the two vehicles is that Hackney Carriages can be "flagged down" on the street or at a rank within the District where it is licensed and Private Hire Vehicles must be pre-booked through a Private Hire Operator. If a Private Hire Driver accepts a fare off the street without it being pre-booked, they are liable to prosecution. It is also important to note that anyone taking a journey in a Private Hire Vehicle which has been "flagged down" may not be insured for the journey.

  • o Vehicle Licences - All vehicles that are to be used as Private Hire Vehicles or a Hackney Carriage must be licensed by the local authority. We must be satisfied that the vehicle is roadworthy, has a valid MOT certificate (if applicable) and is insured for the appropriate use. You will also be required to provide evidence that you own the vehicle (vehicle registration document / logbook) or proof of purchase if the vehicle is newly acquired. Licences are granted for a period of six-months and your vehicle will need to be tested each time you apply. 
  • o Driver Licences – Anyone who drives a Private Hire Vehicle or a Hackney Carriage must be licensed by the same local authority that licenses the vehicle.  We must be satisfied that the driver is ‘fit and proper’ to hold a licence. All drivers are required to complete a theory test (including local knowledge; basic maths and English; Highway Code; and legislation and conditions of licence), medical, practical driving test, safeguarding course and DBS criminal record & right to work in the UK checks. Driver licenses normally last for three years.
  • o Private Hire Operator Licences- Anyone wishing to take bookings for private hire vehicles must be licensed by the same local authority that licenses the vehicle they intend to operate. We must be satisfied that the driver is ‘fit and proper’ to hold a licence. All operators are required to complete a safeguarding course plus DBS criminal record & right to work in the UK checks

 Applications for driver, vehicle and operator licences must be made on the appropriate form and be accompanied by the relevant fee and accompanying documentation. For further information or to obtain an application form please contact the Licensing Section by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  or calling 01246 217877.

 In September 2018 the local authority approved a revised Taxi Licensing Policy which is divided into five sections for ease of reference. The five sections are:

           Drivers

           Vehicles

           Operators

           Enforcement and Offences

           Equality Act

During October 2018 we wrote to all our licence holders to advise them of the key Policy changes and a copy of the letter can be found here

One key change to the new policy is the introduction of a new vehicle condition which will be added to all new private hire vehicle and hackney carriage licences. This will require the vehicle to have a basic inspection each day prior to use and the findings of the inspection will need to be recorded. To assist the trade we have produced a Daily Inspection Book which can be downloaded here

From the 1 January 2019 we will be introducing revised taxi licence fees and the revised fees can be found here.

 

 

As part of the Licensing Act 2003, we advertise applications for premises licenses, club premises certificates, variations and requests for reviews.

All applications are advertised for a period of 28 days, beginning the day after we have received the application. The exception to this is minor variations which are only advertised for 10 working days. All current advertisements are displayed below.

If your business provides any licensable activities - sell alcohol, hot food and drink, or provide certain types of public entertainment - you will need a licence from us. A public register is currently being compiled which will give details of all licences and certificates granted under the Licensing Act 2003.

A licensable activity can be:

  • the sale of alcohol
  • the supply of alcohol at a club
  • the provision of regulated entertainment eg live or recorded music, dancing, indoor sporting event
  • the provision of facilities to allow regulated entertainment to take place
  • the provision of late night refreshment between 11 pm and 5 am.

There are four types of licences which you can apply for:

  • If you sell alcohol, provide regulated entertainment, or late night refreshment, you should apply for a Premises Licence
  • If you are a club that supplies alcohol, regulated entertainment, or late night refreshment, apply for a Club Premises Certificate
  • If you supply or authorise the sale of alcohol, (other than in premises having a Club Premises Certificate) then you will need to apply for a Personal Licence
  • If you are organising a small scale (less than 500 people) event and intend to sell alcohol/refreshments or provide regulated entertainment, then you will need to apply for a Temporary Event Notice (TEN).

Licensing Reviews
The operators of licensed premises are required to actively promote the four licensing objectives:

  1. Prevention of crime and disorder
  2. Prevention of public nuisance
  3. Public safety
  4. Protection of children from harm

Any interested party or responsible authority may call for the review of a premises licence if they believe that the licensing objectives are not being promoted.

Calling for a Review
Application for a review must be made on the Licensing Review (1kb) application form and submitted to us at Licensing Team, North East Derbyshire District Council, 2013 Mill Lane, Wingerworth, Chesterfield , Derbyshire S42 6NG. Copies must also be sent on the same day to the premises licence holder and to each of the responsible authorities. Failure to send these copies may render the application as invalid.
