- Meeting of Licensing Committee (Non Licensing Act 2003 Functions), Thursday, 29th November, 2018 3.00pm (Item 10.)
Electric Charging Points – Electric Powered Vehicles
10.1 The Chair, Councillor O’Quinn, explained that she had recently been at a well attended a presentation in respect of re-chargeable vehicles. Representatives on behalf of the trade had been widely represented and had been able to give their perspective.
Gambling - Fixed Stake Betting Machines
10.2 The implementation of measures to limit stakes had not been brought forward to April 2019 after the proposed delay to October 2019. The changes to be implemented were welcomed as they sought to address this issue. Limits on the stake that could be laid down would be helpful as the misery which could result from reckless betting in terms of debt and mental health were well documented.
10.3 The Uber Hearing had taken place earlier that week on 27 November and those in attendance had been advised that the Judge’s decision would be delivered on 11 December. Irrespective of the result the Chair wished to place on record her thanks to all of the officers involved for their hard work and commitment in organising the hearing, on the day of the hearing and subsequently.
Animal Licensing Legislation
10.4 The report (Item 14 on the agenda) in relation to animal licensing legislation was welcomed as it the issue and potential issues around dog boarding had been explored and that was helpful, given the growth in dog care businesses over recent years.
10.5 RESOLVED – That the content of the Chair’s Communications be noted and received.
