Minutes:

Further to Minute 26, (22/11/16) and in the light of the responses received from the stakeholder consultation, the Committee received a report proposing revised licenced vehicle conditions.

RESOLVED that

 

(a)       the responses to the consultation are noted and evaluated further, to ensure that the proposed changes to the Private Hire and Hackney Carriage Licensed Vehicle Conditions (set out at  Appendix 3 of the report) reflect the views expressed as appropriate;

 

(b)       authority is delegated to the Environment and Licensing Manager, in consultation with the Chairman of the Committee, to make such changes to the draft Private Hire and Hackney Carriage Licensed Vehicle Conditions as are necessary in the light of the above recommendation;

 

(c)        the draft Private Hire and Hackney Carriage Licensed Vehicle Conditions, subject to any necessary amendments, be brought back to the next meeting of this Committee for recommendation to Full Council.
