The Licensing Unit Manager informed the Committee that this licence had not been renewed by the expiry date and was outside of the period for renewal that can be granted under delegated authority and was therefore referred to Committee to consider.

The licence holder addressed the Committee and explained that he had been caring for his parents and arrangements to complete the renewal, via a friend had not happened.

 

The Committee accepted the licence holder’s version of events and in light of the circumstances outlined and considered that the renewal should be granted, out of time.

 

Decision

 

To allow the applicant to renew the licence for hackney carriage proprietor [vehicle] licence application for HV434, out of time, subject to the vehicle being required to be submitted for mechanical test in the normal way.
