Consideration of the Ongoing Suitability of a Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Driver


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

The Licensing Enforcement Officer was in attendance to present the report. The Licence Holder, Members and the Council’s Solicitor were given the opportunity to ask questions of the Licensing Enforcement Officer.


The Licence Holder was then invited to address the Sub-Committee and responded to questions from Members and Officers.


After summing up, the Sub-Committee retired to deliberate the application in private at 2.30 pm. After re-convening at 2.55 pm the Chair delivered the Sub-Committee’s decision.


Resolved: That the Licence Holder’s Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Driver Licence be suspended for 12 months but this be suspended.
