North Norfolk Council considering vaping and E-cigarette ban for taxi drivers and passengers 

Updated: Mar 12

North Norfolk District Council (NNDC) is set to launch a public consultation, starting in February, on possible changes to its taxi and private hire licensing policy.

One of the potential policy changes could be a ban of e-cigarettes and vaping sticks being used in licensed vehicles by both driver and passenger.

Many licensing authorities around the UK already have updated their policy to include e-cigarettes and vaporisers to their banned list.

During a council licensing committee meeting held on Monday 20 January, members of the licensing board discussed the proposal which read: 'The driver must not smoke, or permit any passenger to smoke, in a licensed vehicle at any time.

'This includes the use of electronic cigarettes (e-cigs), personal vaporisers (PV) and electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS), which are also prohibited.'
