The Chief Licensing Officer submitted details in respect of two cases relating to hackney carriage and private hire licensing.




The licence holder in Case No.90/21 did not attend the hearing and the Sub-Committee decided to proceed to consider the case in his absence.




The applicant in Case No.91/21 attended  the hearing with a representative and an observer and the applicant and his representative both addressed the Sub-Committee.




RESOLVED:- That, after consideration of the information contained in the case papers and, where relevant, additional information provided at the hearing, the cases now submitted be determined as follows:-




Case No.

Licence Type








Review of a Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Driver’s Licence

Suspend the licence under Section 61 of the Local Government (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1976, on the grounds that, in view of the offence now reported, the Sub-Committee does not consider the licence holder to be a fit and proper person to hold a licence.







Application for the renewal of a Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Driver’s Licence

Refuse to grant the licence on the grounds that information had been received from the National Crime Agency stating that the applicant was still under investigation, therefore the Sub-Committee did not consider him to be a fit and proper person to hold a licence until the matter had been resolved.
