Any Other Items the Chairman Determines Urgent and Which Requires a Decision

Minutes:

The Chair was concerned about the length of time that had passed between an alleged incident involving a taxi driver happening in early June and the Licencing Authority not being informed about it by the Police until late September, resulting in the holder of the licence still being able to work as a taxi driver during this period.  Due to the nature of the allegation, the Chair and Committee felt this was not good practise in view of public safety and wished to raise the matter with the Chief Constable and a letter had been drafted for committee approval.

 

AGREED that the Chair and Vice Chair would finalise the letter and send to the Chief Constable setting out their concerns.
