Why are we doing this?

The Department for Transport (DfT) standards and the Welsh Government’s Harmonisation of Taxi and Private Hire Vehicle Licensing document were published in July 2020 and March 2021 respectively. Both publications focus on the imperative to ensure that licenses are held only by those who are fit and proper to do so.

The DfT publication sets out detailed standards against which individuals with previous convictions should be assessed. The Welsh Government harmonisation document endorses the same standards.

An analysis of Wrexham council's existing standards for taxi drivers and operators shows that they are not consistent with the DfT standard with differing rules applying in the same circumstances with regard to previous convictions of applicants for driver licences.

Revised suitability criteria are therefore needed in order to comply with the DfT standard and Welsh Government guidelines.

What do we want to know?

We are seeking views on revised suitability criteria that will be considered prior to a final decision on adoption. Views are sought from drivers, operators, vehicle proprietors, trade bodies, users of taxis, user groups, the residents of the County Borough and any other interested parties.

Three documents are provided to assist interested parties in reviewing the revised suitability criteria:

  1. Draft revised Suitability Criteria 
  2. Current Suitability Criteria
  3. Key changes 

Clicking on the above will permit downloading of each document.

Interested parties are invited to review the draft suitability criteria (document 1) and provide any feedback. To assist, respondents can also view the current suitability criteria (document 2) and the document that highlights the key changes between the current and the proposed suitability criteria (document 3).

Why are we doing this?

Trees and woodlands are an essential part of our towns and countryside. They are important for our health, wellbeing and quality of life. We cannot take their future for granted.

Climate change, pests and diseases, building development, modern agricultural practices and misplaced perceptions of risk are just some of the problems that threaten our trees.

At Wrexham Council we have developed the ‘Woodland Pledge’ to help protect trees and woodlands across the county borough. The pledge also encourages people to get outdoors to enjoy trees and woodlands in their neighbourhood.

What do we want to know?
  • We want to know how the people of Wrexham feel about trees and woodlands in their county.
  • We want people to demonstrate their support for trees and woodlands in Wrexham by signing up to the pledge .
  • We want to encourage everyone to join, including those who are part of a local business, community group or organisation.
  • By signing up to the pledge you will join our mailing list, where you can find out how to get involved in 4 different ways:

1. Woodland creation

Tree planting to create new woodland or expand existing woodlands throughout Wrexham. Help us plant more trees by joining one of our tree planting schemes across the county.

2. Woodland conservation

Protect and enhance areas of existing woodland for biodiversity, climate change recovery and good quality habitat.

3. Woodland celebration
