    To consider the attached report of the LicensingTeam Leader.

    Additional documents:


    The Licensing Team Leader informed the Committee that Mr Nigel Wheeler had submitted an application to the Council asking for permission to licence a Vauxhall Insignia, registration plate LD60 XMK, as a Private Hire Vehicle. The Committee was asked to consider the application as the vehicle was outside of the policy guidelines by reason that the vehicle was outside the current age policy, being registered on 15 November 2010.


    The Committee adjourned to examine the vehicle accompanied by the applicant and the officers. The vehicle had covered mileage of 36,500 miles would only be used for chauffeur services and no other private hire purpose. The applicant advised that all jobs would be pre-booked and would be, in the majority, long distance journeys totalling approximately 30-50k miles a year.


    In accordance with the approved procedure, members of the committee and the legal officer withdrew from the meeting to consider the application.


    RESOLVED:     (a)     That, notwithstanding the Council’s current policy guidelines, Mr N Wheeler be granted a Private Hire Vehicle Licence in respect of Vauxhall Insignia LD60 XMK for a period of 12 months; and


    (b)     That, due to the vehicle’s expected mileage and being outside of the Council’s policy guidelines, prior to the expiration of the 12 month period the vehicle be brought before the Regulatory Committee to consider the renewal of the licence.
