PA System for Residents Association.

The Residents Association is most grateful to Councillor Kevin Flurry who made a grant of £200 from his ward budget to cover the cost of a PA system. Residents have mentioned, in the pas,t that they were at times, unable to hear what was being discussed. The new system now means that this should not be a problem. We are very thankful to Councillor Flurry and Spelthorne Council for their generosity in this matter.

TFL Consultation re Private Hire regulations.

In September 2015 and January 2016, we invited comments on our proposals for changes to private hire regulations and on our consultants’ assessment of the impacts of these proposals. Thank you for responding to this consultation. We have now published the findings and these are available at tfl.gov.uk/tph/private-hire-proposals and tfl.gov.uk/tph/private-hire-proposals-iia.

 

We made recommendations to the TfL Board for changes to the regulations, informed by the results of these consultation. The Board considered the recommendations on 17 March and approved changes to the regulations. Details are available at press release.

 

The full list of proposals approved by the Board is as follows. :

Operators must have the facility to provide a booking confirmation to passengers containing the photo ID and details of the vehicle being used to discharge the booking where passengers are able to receive that information

Operators will be required to provide specified information to TfL at specified intervals including details of all drivers and vehicles registered with them

Operators must record the main destination for each booking before the journey commences

Operators to retain all records for a period of 12 months

TfL to control the names under which operators offer private hire services to the public

Private hire drivers to be required to demonstrate a certain standard of English

Individual licence applicants to provide National Insurance numbers to TfL

A driver's private hire vehicle licence to be considered for revocation if their private hire driver's licence is revoked

TfL will liaise with the Home Office on introducing DBS checks on private hire operator staff that have face to face contact with the public

TfL to stop accepting payment for licence fees by postal order and cheque

Drivers to carry or display a copy of insurance details at all times

Introduce new operator licence fee structure to better reflect operator licensing costs based on operator size. The specific revisions to the licence fee structure will be consulted on separately

Amendment of regulations to give TfL the power to control advertising displayed inside, from, or on the outside of a private hire vehicle

Operators will be required to notify TfL before changing their operating model

Operators must ensure that customers can speak to a real person in the event of a problem with their journey

Private hire operators must provide an estimated fare prior to the commencement of the journey

Hire and reward insurance will be required at the point of vehicle licensing, and for it to remain in place for the duration of the licence

Working with the Department for Transport to develop guidance on ridesharing

A decision has been deferred on proposal six, which stated that TfL will no longer issue licence variations to private hire operator licenses to add a late-night or temporary event operating centres. More work will be undertaken on this point.

 

We will now work closely with the private hire industry to ensure that revised regulations are implemented in a timely and appropriate manner.

 

Yours faithfully,
