Minutes:

Case 1

 

The Panel considered a report by the Licensing Officer which contained exempt information in respect of a hackney carriage/private hire vehicle driving licence application.  A copy of the report was circulated to Members in advance of the meeting.  Details of the Applicant’s DBS check were tabled at the meeting for Members’ information.

 

The Chairman of the Panel confirmed that the hearing would be conducted in accordance with the Council’s standard procedures for the hearing of hackney carriage/private hire vehicle driving licence applications as outlined at Appendix A to the report.

 

The Licensing Officer reported regarding the case as information received required that the application be determined by the Panel. 

 

At the invitation of the Chairman, the Applicant addressed the Panel regarding the application and answered questions thereon.

 

Following the submission of the Applicant’s representation, the Applicant and the Licensing Officer withdrew from the meeting whilst the Panel considered its decision.

 

After the Panel’s deliberations, all parties were recalled to the meeting to hear the Chairman announce the decision. 

 

RESOLVED that the application for a Hackney Carriage/Private Hire vehicle driving licence be refused.

 

Case 2

 

The Panel was advised that the Applicant was not able to attend the hearing and had provided a written statement for consideration instead.  Members received a copy of the written representation in the agenda pack that was circulated in advance of the meeting.  Following consultation with the Legal Advisor, the Panel determined that as the Applicant had not requested an adjournment, the hearing should continue.

 

The Licensing Officer reported regarding the case as information received required that the application be determined by the Panel. 

 

The Panel read and considered the written representation provided by the applicant and concluded that in the absence of substantial, mitigating circumstances, there was no reason to go outside of the Council’s policy (which incorporates the Institute of Licensing guidelines).  The Panel therefore determined that the Applicant is not a fit and proper person at this time.

 

RESOLVED that the application for Hackney Carriage/Private Hire Vehicle driving licence be refused.
