(f) TAXI LIASON MEMBERSHIP ANNUAL REVIEW

 

Reference was made to the decision of the Licensing Committee at its meeting on 2nd August, 2018 to amend the criteria for membership of the Taxi Liaison Group by requiring prospective members from groups, associations and offices to demonstrate that they were sufficiently representative to be members of the Group.

 

At its meeting on 24th January, 2019, the Committee approved the undernoted as members of the Group -

 

- Dundee Taxi Association

- Unite The Union

- Dundee Private Hire (203020) Ltd

- Handy Taxis

- Tay Taxis

- Dundee City Taxi Drivers Association

- Dundee Electric Taxi Association

- Dundee 505050 Ltd.

- Dundee City Taxis Ltd

Since then, the following had been approved for membership RMT Union and the Dundee Taxi Information Group. This brought the current total membership from the trade to 11. The Committee requested officers to report back in approximately a years time as to how the revised membership arrangements were operating in practice.

 

There had been four meetings under the revised arrangements. It had also been agreed that there should be four meetings of the Group each year to enable regular dialogue to take place with the trade representatives present. This included the periodic review of taxi fares where there was a statutory duty on the Council to consult with the trade under Section 17 (4A) of the Civic Government (Scotland) Act 1982.

There was submitted an agenda note reporting that due to the exceptional circumstances around the global impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19), and restrictions preventing the inspection of properties, Committee granted licences to the properties listed below, for 1 year to 30th September, 2020. Following satisfactory completion and inspection of outstanding work, licences were to be extended for the balance of the normal 3-year licence to the period ending 30th September, 2022. It was further agreed that where ongoing restrictions prevented inspections, it would be necessary to further extend the period of grant.

 

Ongoing COVID-19 restrictions had prevented inspections and committee were requested to consider extending these licences for a further year to 30th September 2021. Any licences granted under delegated powers, and where inspections of outstanding works were required would also be granted to 30th September, 2021. On satisfactory completion and inspection of the works highlighted below, the licence would be extended for the balance of the normal 3-year licence period ending 30th September, 2022.

 

It was agreed to note the position as outlined and that extension of these licences to the full period of grant, where restrictions continued to prevent inspections. If that became necessary, every effort would be made to verify that any outstanding work was satisfactorily completed. No outstanding work was of a health and safety nature.

(b) COVID-19 INTERIM MEASURE FOR HMO LICENSING (NEW APPLICATIONS) ( AN1-2021)

 

There was submitted Agenda Note AN1-2021 reporting that as a result of current COVID-19 restrictions it had not been possible to carry out inspections of occupied properties the subject of new HMO licence applications. Unoccupied properties were being inspected. The ongoing restrictions,

which had been in place since March 2020, meant that the end of the prohibitive period for some applications would soon be reached. Applications must be determined within 12 months of submission and if not determined within the 12-month prohibitive period, a 1-year licence was automatically granted.

 

One option would be to seek an extension of time from the Sheriff to deal with applications about to reach the 12-month prohibitive period which hade not been inspected, however the preferred option was to consider granting a short 6-month licence to any application where it had not been possible to inspect the property. This would only apply where the property had been previously continuously licensed, where all certification had been received and found to be satisfactory, where there had been a satisfactory inspection by Scottish Fire and Rescue and they had confirmed no objection to a licence being granted and where there were no other officer objections. Any public objections would be dealt with through the usual Committee process. This short period of licence would hopefully provide a sufficient period of time for restrictions to be lifted and inspections to be carried out by the Private Sector Services Unit. The balance of the normal full 3-year licence would then be granted automatically on satisfactory completion of any work identified as a result of inspection. Any extension to the initial 6-month grant would be referred to the Committee for consideration on a case by case basis.

 

It was proposed that where a property had not previously been continuously licenced and had not been inspected or where certification was unsatisfactory or Scottish Fire and Rescue had not confirmed a satisfactory inspection or there were other officer objections, these licences should be refused. However, recognising that where an earlier inspection had been possible, any concerns, other than public objections might have been satisfactorily dealt with in the extended time available, it was proposed that a re-dated application form to accompany the existing application documentation was accepted at no additional cost to the applicant, effectively creating a new application, to be fully processed as soon as restrictions were lifted.

 

Where it was possible to arrange an inspection, as with existing outstanding Validation applications, any property which had been inspected and had outstanding snagging, which was not considered to be of a health and safety concern and did not present a significant compliance problem, should be granted a one-year licence pending satisfactory re-inspection and the subsequent granting of the balance of a full licence, where appropriate and without any additional cost to the applicant.

 

Where the full inspection and reinspection process had been completed these applications would be dealt with in the normal manner.

 

DECISION -

Defer to allow for Private Sector Services Manager to carry further consultation.

 

The Head of Democratic and Legal Services in consultation with the Convener may resolve under Section 50(A)(4) of the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973 that the press and public be excluded from the meeting for the undernoted items of business on the grounds that they involve the likely disclosure of exempt information as defined in paragraphs 3, 6 and 9 of Part I of Schedule 7A of the Act.

(b) COVID-19 INTERIM MEASURE FOR HMO LICENSING (NEW APPLICATIONS)

 

There was submitted Agenda Note AN6-2021 reporting that as a result of current COVID-19 restrictions it had not been possible to carry out inspections of occupied properties the subject of new HMO licence applications. Unoccupied properties were being inspected. The ongoing restrictions, which had been in place since March 2020, meant that the prohibitive period for some applications was about to be reached. Applications must be determined within 12 months of submission and if not determined within the 12-month prohibitive period, a 1-year licence was automatically granted.

 

One option would be to seek an extension of time from the Sheriff to deal with applications about to reach the 12-month prohibitive period which had not been inspected, however the preferred option was to consider granting a short 6-month licence to any application where it had not been possible to inspect the property. This would only apply where the property had been previously continuously licensed, where all certification had been received and found to be satisfactory, where there had been a satisfactory inspection by Scottish Fire and Rescue and they had confirmed no objection to a licence being granted and where there were no other officer objections. Any public objections would be dealt with through the usual Committee process. This short period of licence would hopefully provide sufficient a period of time for restrictions to be lifted and inspections to be carried out by the Private Sector Services Unit. The balance of the normal full 3-year licence would then be granted automatically on satisfactory completion of any work identified as a result of inspection. Any extension to the initial 6-month grant would be referred to the Committee for consideration on a case by case basis.

 

It was proposed that where a property has not previously been continuously licenced and had not been inspected or where certification is unsatisfactory or Scottish Fire and Rescue had not confirmed a satisfactory inspection or there were other officer objections, these licences should be refused. However, recognising that where an earlier inspection had been possible, any concerns, other than public objections might have been satisfactorily dealt with in the extended time available, it was proposed that a re-dated application form to accompany the existing application documentation was accepted at no additional cost to the applicant, effectively creating a new application, to be fully processed as soon as restrictions were lifted.

 

Where it was possible to arrange an inspection, as with existing outstanding Validation applications, any property which had been inspected and had outstanding snagging, which was not considered to be of a health and safety concern and did not present a significant compliance problem, should be granted a one-year licence pending satisfactory reinspection and the subsequent granting of the balance of a full licence, where appropriate and without any additional cost to the applicant.

 

Where the full inspection and reinspection process had been completed these applications would be dealt with in the normal manner

 

DECISION -

Agreed to defer consideration of the matter.

 

The Head of Democratic and Legal Services in consultation with the Convener resolved under Section 50(A)(4) of the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973 that the press and public be excluded from the meeting for the undernoted items of business on the grounds that they involve the likely disclosure of exempt information as defined in paragraphs 3, 6 and 9 of Part I of Schedule 7A of the Act.

DECISION -

It was reported that HMO licences were required to be Validated (renewed) on a common renewal date of 1st October in the relevant year. Licence holders were reminded in June of that year that they were due to validate the licence and were encouraged to submit validation applications from July onwards with an absolute submission deadline of 30th September. A small number of applicants failed to submit their application by 30th September deadline and these became late applications Where an applicant failed to submit a competent application by 30th September, the application would be referred to the Licensing Committee who would be asked to consider offering a shorter licence up to a maximum of 2 years subject to any representation form the applicant.

 

The terms of the note were agreed.
