PRIVATE HIRE VEHICLE LICENCE pdf icon PDF 135 KB

Minutes:

 

(NOTE: Councillor E. Thomas, having earlier declared an interest in this item, left the Council Chamber during its determination.)

 

The Committee considered an application from Mr Michael John Wilkinson of Llandeilo Taxi Service, Kings Lodge, Llandeilo to be granted an exemption from conditions 5a and 5b of the Council’s Licence Conditions for Private Hire Vehicles for his Private Hire Vehicle PH580, a Ford Mondeo Vignale registration number MX19 VBE.

 

As he intends to operate this vehicle for air and sea port travel and executive hire only, Mr Wilkinson had requested that he be granted an exemption from conditions 5a and 5b of the Council’s Licence Conditions, namely that he be not required to display door stickers and a licence plate on the rear bumper of his vehicle.

 

Should the Licensing Committee agree to grant Mr Wilkinson an exemption then the following conditions would be attached to the Licence:-

 

-       That the licensed Ford Mondeo Vignale PH399 registration number MX19 VBE be exempt from licence conditions 5a and 5b whilst being used for air and sea port travel and executive hire purposes, as outlined in the application by Mr Wilkinson;

-       That, should the vehicle be used for Private Hire other than air and sea port travel and executive hire, then the applicant shall immediately notify the Licensing Authority and the exemption shall cease in relation to such hiring;

-       That the vehicle displays an identification disc on the front and rear windscreens, as specified by the Licensing Authority.

 

RESOLVED that the application submitted by Mr Michael John Wilkinson for an exemption from Conditions 5a and 5b of the Council’s Licence Conditions for Private Hire Vehicles for her Renault Trafic PH399, registration number MX19 VBE be granted.
