In the absence of the Convener, Councillor Bell took the Chair for today’s meeting.



The press and public were excluded from the meeting for consideration of the applications listed below in terms of Section 50(A)(3)(b) of the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973.


Application for the Renewal of a Taxi Driver's Licence


With reference to article 5 of Appendix B of the minute of meeting of the Licensing Committee of 20 August 2018, the Sub Committee had before it an information sheet prepared by the Chief Officer – Governance in respect of the application which advised that the application had to be determined by 1 October 2019 and a medical report from the Council’s Occupational Health dated 18 September 2019.


Mr Munro, Legal Advisor, provided the Sub Committee with a verbal update on the application.


The applicant was in attendance and spoke in support of the application.


Members asked questions of the applicant.


The Sub Committee resolved:-

(i)        to refuse the application; and

(ii)       to agree that should the applicant meet the Group 2 DVLA medical criteria following receipt of a further medical report this would result in a material change of circumstance and therefore a new application could be processed for the applicant.

-           COUNCILLOR PHILIP BELL, Convener
