Taxi Consultative Group 

The TCG acts as a representative body for the whole hackney carriage and private hire trade, ensuring consultation with all licence holders to enable the Council to make fully informed decisions. Membership of the TCG consists of 3 elected Borough Councillors, 3 hackney carriage licence holders (drivers or owners) and 3 private hire vehicle licence holders (drivers, owners or operators). Two of the six places allocated to members of the trade should, if applications are made, be filled by trade members who represent minority ethnic members of the trade (one from each of the hackney carriage and private hire sectors).

The next meeting of the TCG is on Wednesday  27 January 2016 at 6.00pm in Chesterfield town hall.
