What do we want to know?

The Licensing and Regulatory Committee, at its meeting on 17 April 2019 agreed that a consultation should be undertaken on proposed policy changes to the licensing of taxi and private hire vehicles. Some of the proposals take account of the future implementation of phase 2 of the Low Emission Zone in Glasgow.

The proposals that the Committee are seeking your views on are:

  • Whether a policy is adopted that in determining the suitability of a taxi or private hire car in terms of section 10(2) of the Civic Government (Scotland) Act 1982 Act, all such vehicles to be used as a taxi or private hire car will require to meet the emissions standard Euro IV for petrol vehicles and Euro VI for diesel vehicles by 31 December 2022;
  • Whether from 1 January 2020, the policy requiring that taxi vehicles be no more than five years of age at the date of lodging an application for a new licence or the substitution of a vehicle is removed for all applications for new and substitute taxi vehicles, subject to the replacement vehicle being a newer vehicle than that currently licensed;
  • The suitability of implementing a risk based inspection program as from 1 January 2023, which would reduce the number of inspections required for newer vehicles and increase them for older vehicles; and
  • From 1 January 2020, whether all advertising livery should be removed from the bodywork of a taxi aged 10 years of more prior to the annual inspection

Click for more detail Consultation Regarding Glasgow’s Public Golf Courses Glasgow Life 07 Jun 2019 07 Jul 2019
What do we want to know?

At present Glasgow has six public golf courses which are operated on behalf of the City Council by its cultural and sporting charity which is Glasgow Life. There are three 18-hole courses and three 9-hole courses.

Low usage figures combined with a substantial annual deficit incurred in the provision of these facilities requires us to seek views and suggestions from all interested parties – both golfers - non-golfers – and local communities - as what best to do to address these challenges.
 
We are interested in your suggestions and ideas and also to what other use or purpose the courses might be used for if retaining them all for golf proved not possible.
 
We wish to hear from you – all your ideas, options and suggestions will be most welcome.
 
Please help us in this work by completing this short survey by midnight on Sunday 7 July 2019.

What do we want to know?

Recently, the Scottish Government passed legislation giving Local Authorities a discretionary power to licence Sexual Entertainment Venues.                                               

The main changes introduced by the recent legislation are summarised below:

  • A discretionary power for Local Authorities to pass a resolution, if it so wishes, in relation to the licensing of SEVs in its area;
  • If a resolution is passed by the Local Authority:
    • it must determine the appropriate number of SEVs for their area and for each relevant locality;
    • it must prepare a SEV Policy Statement in respect of its functions in relation to the licensing of SEVs taking into account the licensing objectives of public nuisance, crime and disorder, public safety, protecting children and young people from harm and violence against women;
    • there are various grounds for the refusal of a SEV licence including that the number of SEVs in the Local Authority area or the relevant locality at the time the application is made is equal to or exceeds the number which the Local Authority consider is appropriate for that locality;
    • all SEVs would require a SEV licence to operate;
    • the resolution must not come into force any earlier than one year from the date the resolution is made by the Local Authority; and
    • a SEV  Policy Statement must be published by the Local Authority 28 days prior to the resolution coming into effect.
