SKEGNESS TAXI PRICES
East Lindsey District Council sets the maximum hackney carriage (taxi) fare structure (for hirings beginning and ending within the District) and it is unlawful to charge a rate above that set by the Authority. The Council cannot set a maximum fare structure for private hire vehicles. A copy of the current maximum fare structure can be found here.
In February 2010 the Council's General Licensing Committee (consisting of Councillors) agreed to introduce a yearly review of the maximum hackney carriage fare structure. The purpose of the yearly review was to set aside a period each year when the taxi trade would be aware that the Council intended to look at taxi fares - all interested parties would then have their window of opportunity to say whether the fare structure should be varied. The Committee indicated that the fare review would usually take place in January or February each year.
Any proposed variation of the fare structure will be advertised by the Council in a local newspaper and a period of time allowed for objections.
From 0700hrs to 2300hrs 7 days a week the meter in a hackney carriage should display the number 1 indicating the meter is set to tariff 1 and the meter should start at £3.20
From 2300hrs to 0700hrs 7 days a week the meter in a hackney carriage should display the number 2 indicating the meter is set to tariff 2 and the meter should start at £4.80
Bank holiday tariff's may differ.
Prices for Private hire vehicles and Executive hire vehicles are not covered by the hackney fare structure.
