Public Inquiry Following Licence Variation Application
This Essex wholesaler with a restricted licence rather optimistically wanted to add a new operating centre and increase the vehicles on his licence to more than twice his current total.
The Operator was called in for a Public Inquiry which soon exposed serious defects in the Operator’s compliance regime. At this stage he sought professional advice. Because of this the operator was able to address many of the defects before the Public Inquiry.
At Public Inquiry the Operator kept his licence and was granted the new operating centre. A curtailment of one vehicle from his licence (his current margin) was imposed, with the liberty to reapply after an acceptable audit
