The Sub-Committee considered a report of the Corporate Director of Neighbourhoods and Climate Change to determine the ongoing suitability of the Licence Holder to continue to be licensed as a Joint Driver (for copy see file of minutes).
The Licensing Enforcement Officer presented the report and indicated that Durham Constabulary had provided additional information that had been circulated to all parties prior to the meeting. All parties were given the opportunity to ask questions of the Officer.
A representative from Durham Constabulary was then invited to address the Sub-Committee and play video footage of the incident. The Licence Holder, Members and Officers were given the opportunity to ask question.
The Licence Holder was then invited to address the Sub-Committee and responded to questions from all parties.
After all parties were given the opportunity to make a closing statement, the Sub-Committee retired to deliberate the matter in private at 2.50 pm. After re-convening at 3.15 pm, the Chair delivered the Sub-Committee’s decision.
