Consideration of the Ongoing Suitability of a Joint Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Driver to hold a licence from Durham County Council


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


The Sub-Committee considered the 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 Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Driver (for copy of report, see file of minutes).


The Licensing Enforcement Officer was in attendance to present the report and circulated a character reference provided by the Licence Holder that had been verified. The Licence Holder, Members and Officers were invited 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 all parties were given the opportunity to sum up, the Sub-Committee retired to deliberate the application in private at 2.45 pm. After re-convening at 2.50 pm the Chair delivered the Sub-Committee’s decision.


Resolved: That no further action be taken.
