Hackney Carriage & Private Hire Driver Enforcement and Monitoring

Report of the Executive Director of Neighbourhoods, Communities and Housing (copy attached)


7.1       The Committee considered a report of the Director of Neighbourhoods, Communities and Housing the purpose of which was to provide Members with an update on enforcement action taken against Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Drivers and Applicants between February and June 2017.


7.2       Councillor Simson stated that it was of great concern to her that some of the sanctions appeared to very light touch in that they did not appear to reflect the severity of the offences that had occurred. It was explained that the action taken was in line with agreed procedures set out in legislation.


7.3       Councillor Wares whilst accepting this to be the case stated that it would be useful for Members to receive details about that, otherwise they were considering the information provided in a vacuum. Councillors Cattell and Page concurred in that view, the Chair, Councillor O’Quinn also agreeing that it would be helpful for Members to receive this information separately from the meeting for in order for them to be better informed in this matter. It was agreed that would be done.


7.3       RESOLVED – That the contents of the report be received and noted.
