Dear Lee Ward,
The city council have not visited any of the listed Local Authority areas
for the purposes of routine enforcement checks of vehicles and drivers
licenced by MCC who may occasionally, predominantly, or exclusively work
in those areas. However, we would state that it is common and regular
practice for visits to be made to addresses associated with licence
holders, which may be located in a neighbouring local authority area, for
the performance of the city council's taxi and private hire enforcement
and compliance function.
