South Staffordshire Council is considering handing over taxi licensing functions to a neighbouring authority in a move that is claimed could cut costs and improve public safety.

Stourbridge News reports that councillors and officers from the district authority have met with City of Wolverhampton Council to discuss the transfer, a report has revealed.

If the delegation of hackney carriage and private hire vehicle licensing to the city council is approved it could be for an initial period of three years.

Members of South Staffordshire Council’s Regulatory and Licensing Committee were due to discuss the proposals at a meeting on Thursday September 16.

They went into a private session before considering the move, but the report was available for public view ahead of the meeting.

It said the benefits of delegating taxi licensing functions to City of Wolverhampton Council include greater choice for the trade in terms of garages, medical practitioners and online applications, as well as boosting public safety through tighter standards and improved enforcement activity. The move could also reduce licensing costs for the trade and council costs, the report added.

Improving safety by letting Wolverhampton do the licensing

Bit like ice skating in heated skates

You do know that it is the friction between the blade and the ice that causes the ice to melt below the blade thus making the blade slide, or is another school day for you.

I would think that there may have been some commercially sensitive details that were not in the public document that were going to be discussed.

I'm intrigued as to what info is private in respect of the licensing function.

The budget isn't private, individual wages maybe, but the total budget should be open and transparent.

Maybe, but there will come a Point where the Ice melts faster than it's ability to support both the Skates and the guy skating on thin ice that's wearing them....then it all comes crashing down.
