On 11th September 2021 Southampton City Council's Licensing Committee approved a process to re-distribute lapsed licences for hackney carriages. Two licenses have lapsed. Plate 031 and Plate 233. The purpose of this notice is to advise interested parties of the availability and the allocation process. Objectives and Criteria It is likely that more than 2 applications will be made and therefore it may be necessary to allocate the available licences by ballot to those applicants meeting the council's objectives and application criteria. These criteria are set out in the procedure which can be accessed through our website:  and search for hackney carriage licence allocation policy.
The council wishes to avoid any discrimination in favour of, or against, any group. Because of the limited number of licences available, the council will not consider multiple applications by any individual or applications made on behalf of third parties.
