Minutes:

The Sub Committee considered an application for a renewal of a Hackney Carriage Vehicle licence.

 

The question arose because it had come to the Council’s attention during the application process that the applicant had 2 convictions from 2009 that fell within the Council’s guidelines for relevance of convictions. 

 

The applicant was a licensed driver and the application related to the vehicle only.  The new Council policy meant that the proprietor of vehicles now had to satisfy the criteria and any decision against the Vehicle licence may mean the Driver’s licence would require reconsideration. 

 

After very careful consideration of information from the Council’s Licensing Officers and representations from the applicant and his representative, the Sub Committee agreed as follows:

 

Resolved: that the renewal application for a Hackney Carriage Vehicle licence be granted.
