Further to minute 45 of the previous meeting held on the 20th February, 2019, the Service Director Legal Services will present the response submitted by the Authority following the Taxi and Private Hire DoT consultation.
The Service Director Legal Services submitted a report providing an update on the response submitted by the Authority following the Taxi and Private Hire DoT consultation.
The Chair expressed his disappointment at the lack of responses from Members on the Licensing Committee and that out of 26 members only 1 had responded which was the Chair himself. It was also noted that one Member had responded direct to the DoT. Members stated that some had struggled to respond due to IT difficulties. Overall it was noted that it was a positive consultation and responses given reflected that Barnsley already complied with many of the suggestions and were doing over and above what was being asked and many of the issues highlighted were already enshrined in Barnsley’s Policies.
RESOLVED that the consultation be noted.
