Financial support for licensed taxi drivers

New Forest District Council recognises the impact that COVID-19 has had on the New Forest's Taxi (Hackney Carriage and Private hire) drivers. As such, we have now launched The New Forest Taxi Driver Grant (TDG).

You can find more information and the application form at

The TDG will close to new applications at midday on Friday 7 May 2021. Applications after this date will not be accepted. 

Please note: The New Forest Taxi Driver Grant (TDG) scheme is administered by the Council's Economic Development team, NOT the Licensing team. You will find the contact details for Economic Development via the link above.

Depending on the volume of applications, it may take 4 weeks to process your application. Please do not contact Economic Development, or the Licensing team, to enquire about the progress of your application. You will be contacted if further information is required.

Please be assured applications will be processed as quickly as possible and you'll be notified of the outcome.
