Application for Grant of a licence to use a vehicle as a Private Hire Vehicle

Minutes:

The Sub-Committee considered an application for the grant of a licence to use a vehicle as a Hackney Carriage that fell outside of the Council’s Hackney Carriage and Private hire Handbook which restricted vehicles in the District with tinted windows that conceal the identity of passengers inside the vehicle.

 

The Technical Officer (Licensing), Worcestershire Regulatory Services (WRS) outlined the details of the application together with the reasons why the application had been brought before the Sub-Committee, detailing the Council’s Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Handbook.

 

At the invitation of the Chairman, the applicant put forward his case in support of his application and answered a number of questions from Members of the Sub-Committee.

 

Sub-Committee Members inspected the vehicle to determine the level of tint on the windows of the vehicle.

 

The Sub-Committee then adjourned to consider its decision, upon its return it was:

 

RESOLVED that the application be refused.
