Consideration of the Ongoing Suitability of a Hackney Carriage Driver


The Sub-Committee considered a report of the Corporate Director of Neighbourhoods and Climate Change to determine the ongoing suitability of a Hackney Carriage Driver (for copy of report, see file of minutes).


The Licensing Enforcement Officer informed the Sub-Committee that the Licence Holder had advised that he was not attending the meeting and wished to surrender his Hackney Carriage Driver Licence. The content of the e-mail received from the Licence Holder was read out for the benefit of the Sub-Committee.

The Legal Officer referred Members to the relevant section of the Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Licensing Policy at Appendix 3.


At 2.15pm the Sub-Committee retired to deliberate the matter in private. After re-convening at 2.20pm, the Chair delivered the Sub-Committee’s decision.




That the Hackney Carriage Driver Licence be revoked with immediate effect.
