Consideration of the Ongoing Suitability of a Hackney Carriage Driver

Minutes:

The Chair welcomed the Licence Holder and his Solicitor to the meeting and introductions were made.

 

The Sub-Committee considered the report of the Corporate Director of Neighbourhoods and Climate Change that asked Members to consider the ongoing suitability of the Licence Holder to continue to be licensed as a Hackney Carriage Driver (for copy of report, see file of Minutes).

 

The Licensing Enforcement Officer presented the report and Members and the Licence Holder and his Solicitor were given the opportunity to ask questions of the Officer.

 

The Licence Holder and his Solicitor were invited to address the Sub-Committee and responded to questions from Members and Officers.

 

After all parties had been given the opportunity to make a closing statement, the Licence Holder and his Solicitor were advised that the Sub-Committee would retire to deliberate the application in private and the Licence Holder would be notified of their decision later today.

 

The Sub-Committee retired to deliberate the application in private at 10.10 am.

 

Resolved: That the Licence Holder be issued with a written warning for a 6 month period.
