Draft Local List for Gloucester 

Gloucester City Council is holding a public consultation regarding the Draft Local List for Gloucester.

The purpose of the Local List for Gloucester is to provide a record of unlisted heritage assets of local importance to Gloucester. The intention is to make locally important heritage assets more visible to the planning process and give local people the chance to put forward unlisted heritage assets for consideration. The local list is underpinned from guidance in policies SD8 of the Gloucester, Cheltenham and Tewkesbury Joint Core Strategy (2017), and Gloucester’s Heritage Strategy 2019 -2029.

The public consultation will run until Tuesday 22 May 2022

Responses will be received until midnight on Sunday 22 May 2022.

Consultation on whether CCTV within Licensed Vehicles would have a proportionate positive impact on public safety within Gloucester

In July 2020, the Secretary of State for Transport issued a new set of ‘Statutory Taxi and Private Hire Vehicle Standards’ to Licensing Authorities aimed at safeguarding children and vulnerable adults.

The standards set out a range of measures to protect passengers and the Department for Transport required that each Licensing Authority reviewed their policies with a plan to implement the standards.

One of the recommendations, not yet considered by Gloucester City Council, is that “All licensing authorities should consult to identify if there are local circumstances which indicate that the installation of CCTV in vehicles would have either a positive or an adverse net effect on the safety of Hackney Carriage and Private Hire vehicle users, including children or vulnerable adults, and taking into account potential privacy issues.”

The Gloucestershire Licensing Officers Group have drafted a county consultation document that each authority can use to consult on this matter. The aim of the consultation is to identify if there is local evidence that would support each local authority introducing a mandatory CCTV policy.

Local outcomes to consultation may be different and each authority will need to make its own decision, based on local evidence, whether to introduce a mandatory approach.

Members of the Licensing and Enforcement Committee approved the County CCTV Consultation Document for an eight week consultation. The consultation document can be found by clicking on the below link:-
