Minutes:

The Chair welcomed Mr Hidayat to the Meeting.

 

Simon Jones then outlined the procedure for the hearing and the considerations that had to be made by the Committee.

 

Aneurin Hughes then led the Committee in detail through the report and highlighted this is the first application of its kind in relation to the installation of CCTV in a vehicle in Merthyr Tydfil.

 

Questions were then raised by the Committee on the submissions made by Mr Hidayat and were responded to by Mr Hidayat and the Officers in attendance.

 

Simon Jones explained that Merthyr Tydfil doesn’t have its own policy on the use of CCTV in taxis and private hire vehicles and therefore in this instance we will utilise the Welsh Government Guidance on the use of CCTV systems – Taxi and private hire vehicles: CCTV specifications and conditions.

 

Simon Jones and Aneurin Hughes outlined the conditions included in the Welsh Government Guidance and which conditions would be adopted by Merthyr Tydfil.

 

Mr Hidayat was asked if he was happy to adhere to all the conditions outlined by Simon Jones and Aneurin Hughes.

 

After further discussions by the committee and officers it was Resolved that:

 

The submissions made by Mr Hidayat and the information received by the Committee be referred to the Planning, Regulatory and Licensing Committee for their consideration and determination in whether to Grant the application to allow CCTV to be positioned in his Hackney Carriage Vehicle under Condition 3 (Interior and Exterior) of the Hackney Carraige Vehicle Conditions.
