Minutes:

Consideration was given to a report of the Corporate Director of Environment, Communities and Leisure, which had been circulated prior to the meeting, regarding an application for a one year joint Hackney Carriage/Private Hire Driver’s Licence for MN.

 

MN did not attend the meeting so members agreed to defer the decision of the application to the next available committee.

 

MN arrived and as all members were still present in the chamber it was agreed by the members to re-convene the meeting and consider MN’s application.

 

MN addressed the Committee.

 

In making the decision the Committee applied the Council’s approved Policy and Guidelines.

 

RESOLVED to:

 

Approve MN’s application for a one year Joint Hackney Carriage/Private Hire Driver’s Licence.
