The Licensing, Food & Safety Manager, reported that a request, in principle, had been received from Mr David Jones of Birchgrove Mini Travel Ltd for Members to determine the suitability of a Black Mercedes E Class, 2200cc diesel engine vehicle, for licensing as a restricted private hire vehicle to carry three passengers.

 

Members asked questions of Mr Jones who responded accordingly.

 

Resolved the application be refused.

 

Reason for Decision

 

Members determined that the vehicle did not meet the requirements of the existing restricted private hire vehicle conditions as the vehicle:

 

It only has two doors; That being one door either side of the vehicle

 

Vehicles must have 2 door’s each side of the vehicle; passengers should have access to a door.

 

All passengers shall have access to their own door to allow them to exit.

 

Doors must open sufficiently wide to allow for regress.
