The Licence Holder was not in attendance.
Members asked for clarification as to the steps taken to ensure the Licence Holder was aware of the hearing. After receiving confirmation that the Licence Holder was aware, Members discussed whether they should proceed in the absence of the Licence Holder and agreed to proceed.
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 were given the opportunity to ask questions of the Officer.
The Sub-Committee retired to deliberate the application in private at 2.00 pm.
Resolved: That the Licence Holder’s Hackney Carriage Driver Licence be revoked.
