    RESOLVED:   (a)       That, having regard to the evidence, the Committee considered that the applicant was a fit and proper person in accordance with Sections 51 and 59 of the Local Government (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1976, and that the application for a Joint Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Licence be granted for an initial period of 11 months; and

     

    (b)       That, the Licensing Team Leader shall monitor and review the applicant’s progress; and

     

    (c)        That, providing there are no issues during the initial 11 months, the Licensing Team Leader will grant the licence for the remainder of the application period and without the matter having to be brought back before the Committee.
