Are you are a taxi or private hire driver living in the New Forest, licensed by Southampton City Council and working in the city? According to the New Forest District Council website taxi licensing in The New Forest is being paid from our council tax.
However, New Forest District Council (NFDC) licenced drivers as well as drivers for Uber are working predominantly in Southampton not the New Forest! This is having a serious financial impact on our trade. NFDC are also licensing white private hire vehicles that look like very much like our own, which is in our opinion very confusing and conflicting for passengers.
