11 February 2022: Hackney taxi financial support – last chance to apply

Financed using Defra’s Clean Air grant Nottingham City Council is encouraging hackney taxi drivers to make their next taxi an Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (ULEV) to support our Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Vehicle Strategy 2017-2020.

To encourage uptake of ULEV hackney taxis we are offering up to £3,191 of financial support. This includes contributions to vehicle licence fees & MOT over two years; first year insurance; standard vehicle livery; meter installation and a new home charge point or charging allowance. New applications must be received no later than 31 March 2022.

Funding is awarded under De Minimis State Aid rules. Hackney taxi drivers must provide evidence to apply, including their valid Blue Hackney Taxi Licence and ULEV vehicle registration document (logbook).
