Meeting: 07/02/2017 - Environment and Licensing Committee (Item 61)

Change of Circumstance of Joint Hackney Carriage / Private Hire Drivers Licence - JC

Report of Director of Health & Community Wellbeing - David Wakelin

Minutes:

Consideration was given to a report by Director of Health and Community Wellbeing, which had been circulated prior to the meeting, regarding an application for a change of circumstances of Joint Hackney Carriage/Private Hire Driver’s Licence for JC.

 

JC attended the meeting and addressed the Committee.

 

In making its decision, the Committee applied the Council’s approved Policy and Guidelines.  On the basis of what it heard, the Committee was satisfied on balance that no exceptional circumstances existed which warranted departure from policy.

 

RESOLVED:

 

To suspend the Hackney Carriage/Private Hire Driver’s Licence held by JC for a period 28 days, without immediate effect and to give JC 21 days to surrender his licence.  And issued with a warning that his licence may be revoked by the Committee should he receive further Fixed Penalty Notice for smoking in a licenced vehicle.

 

JC was advised of his right to appeal against the decision of the Committee.
